New Images in Ha using a new Infinity mono
« on: May 23, 2016, 09:52:07 pm »
Hi Everyone.

I just wanted to show a couple of live results using my new Atik Infinity mono camera capture with a VRC 10" scope. Both images NGC 6888 or Crescent nebula and NGC 7635 or Bubble nebula were captured late last night under a full moon using an Orion 7 nm Ha filter. I took at full resolution (unbinned) 4 x 60 seconds for both and live stacked them using the Infinity software. The two images were as they appeared on my monitor and had no post processing.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Steve Chambers at the Canadian Telescope show called AstroCATS and we had a fantastic discussion. Steve is a gentleman who has a strong passion for astronomy and having fun under the stars. I want to personally thank Steve Chambers for all that he did for me. He has attended every AstroCATS show all the way from the UK and that is pure dedication.

I look forward to posting a lot of my results here using both the Atik color and mono Infinity cameras.

Thank you again Steve!!

Cheers,

Chris Appleton

Thank you Jo! Yes these Atik Infinity cameras are really sensitive and make for fantastic observing session plus some decent imaging as a bonus.
