with the new camera comes the need for user testing. I propose that we put on a few very short total exposure time jobs just to help test the camera and focus etc All the stuff Steve and Pete will have done and rightly not shown us.
I have put on a narrow band of the elehants trunk (the dark nebula bit fits beatuifully in the wider aspect ratio of the 294). Just to test the NB filter response - just half an hour of each filter - so we fill a slot but hopefully we get the data quite quickly.
Another one I am just about to put on is LRGB 30mins each of the fireworks galaxy NGC 6946
Finally what do people think of a reasonable session on the Trifid this season - . it is rising just before dawn now and we can get about an hour per day on the West side of the mount.... As it is so low we will have to be selective on the data we use......
All of these are rising quite late in the morning at the moment, so if they work we can add through the season.....
