Mono Infinity / Dob capture #1
« on: August 03, 2016, 05:10:58 am »
Here are 'proof of concept' captures from a mono Infinity using a 10" SkyWatcher goto Dob.  These were saved from the Infinity application.  This scope is F4.7, and optimal exposure times seem to run between 1 and 5 seconds.  Even when tracking seems to be drifting the short exposure times yield decent images.

I agree with you.

With my 200 mm reflector I have the best results at short expositions.

Clusters with 1,5" each one only

Galaxys and other faint objects 12" each one only

Larger expositions makes a lot of parasite noise and don't improve the details.

Congratulations for your very good shoot.

Thanks....I've gotten the focus better a couple times and that is rewarding.  I'm afraid I'm in for a new focuser, the single-speed crayford on my SkyWatcher just isn't controllable enough for the camera.

Great image on DOB.  Shows the short exposures keep star trails out of the images
