IC1396

One of my favorite objects, IC1396 in Cepheus, or also called the “Elephant Trunc”, imaged from Castellet-en-Luberon under a beautifull SQM 21.30 sky, with crickets, shooting stars.

NGC7000 or “North-Americanebula”

Second light for the new ASI2600 MC Pro camera, this time used on the Sharpstar 76 EDPH F4.5 Apo. 70x300s or 5hrs 50m over three nights in the week of July 21th 2020. Over the nights there was a slight shift in image field which resulted in a mosaic like appearance. The gain setting was set to “Highest Dynamical Range”. Click on the image for a larger view.
