Previously I had posted the image of Pleiades captured in LRGB and processed with StarTools. But I felt that I could probably do more with the data using Pixinsight. Having had a chance to learn the workflow for working with LRGB images, I decided to put the experience gained into reprocessing Pleiades. Continue reading Pleiades – reprocessing

In the recent months, each time when there was clear skies, there seemed to be the moon prominently lighting up the night sky. Hence the only form of imaging I could do was with narrowband filters. But recently there were a few reasonably clear nights without the moon lighting up the sky. So even though the light pollution was higher than it normally is, I decided that I still had to take the opportunity to try out the Astronomik Deep Sky RGB filters for imaging.

Subject number 3 – Pleiades. Previously my attempts at this subject has been with shorter 2 minute subs. Now that I am able to guide and capture 5 minute subs accurately, I decided to use longer subs to capture more detail of the Seven Sisters. Continue reading The Pleiades M45

I became aware that Venus and Pleiades would be very close together in the sky this weekend. Apparently they would be about 2 degrees apart from each other. As I had been getting my Celestron CGEM aligned and ready for serious imaging, I thought I would take some time out to do some wide-field imaging using the Sony A6000 and some native E-mount lenses.
