Infinity Colour: the extra 8 minutes
« on: November 01, 2016, 09:44:06 AM »
I have just bought an Infinity Colour to use with my C9.25 and 80mm Equinox on a AZ-EQ6 on observatory pier.  I am really looking forward to seeing what this camera can do – my only experience with video cams has been with an IS planetary. 

My first question on this forum is…what have you found can be done using those extra eight minutes of exposure between 2 and 10 mins, provided since the update, given it’s a non-cooled camera?

How can expose over 2 minutes? I though 2 minutes are the max

Well Tony here are some Ha examples captured live on NSN.com and not post processed. Sorry I do not post many images here since there is never any response. This is a screen capture showing M1 at 7 x 360 secs using my RC10" @ F4.3 mono Infinity and an Orion 7 nm Ha filter.

Here is a colour image of M1 4 X 180 secs using an Astronomik UHC filter and my colour Infinity camera with the RC 10"@ F4.3 last summer at 80 degrees F night temps. I usually do not have to go beyond 60 to 90 secs for colour but had to go longer due to this type of filter. Image was capture live on NSN.com with no post processing and from a very large LP city Toronto 6 million population, Canada. The Infinity cameras due well with longer exposures but might show some warm pixels
