I set out to image the california nebula but early on as It was low on the horizon I decided to get a few shots of the crescent nebula and region.
Very pleased for such a short integration but Id like to add the OIII and SII channels at some point.
Been waiting since I took up this hobby to image this. The Orion Nebula. Not taken from the garden this time, but the drive! Sat in the cold for over 4 hours waiting for Orion to be in the right position. It was worth the wait.

I only had chance to take 4x5min on the horsehead last week as I was still working on ngc 281. But here is the result of my 20min.
One for the future !
Pacman nebula in hubble palette 30x5min HA OIII SII
I’ve never been a fan of the hubble palette but my wife appears to like them more than my RGB so maybe its time to take action 🙂
Thought I would image the Sadr region, its a very high Ha area and thought I would give it a go.
I was setting up for a clear night today and came across this issue with my hand controller. This is the first time it’s done this. All my setup is exactly the same with power coming from mains. I’ve read something about low voltage or current, but it worked perfectly before with the same cable! I tried connecting it to my other mount with another cable and the same issue occurred. This has led me to believe my hand controller has been damaged in some way? Has anyone experienced this before?
For those of you like me that are new to this, you might find the link below useful.
This has helped me understand the best combination of scope and camera to frame targets and understand what might be cropped out.
