Pelican’s Head and a Dumbbell

Really great to see the clear nights over the weekend giving everyone a chance to make some pictures. I had a couple of wonderful observing sessions on Friday and Saturday, plus the chance to do some imaging and also the chance to see Comet Neowise at 3am- a stunning and terrific sight.

Unfortunately my handheld attempts on the comet didn’t come out brilliantly, and I couldn’t get it from my imaging rig. I did get 45 minutes on M27 on Friday night and 110 minutes on the Pelican nebula on Saturday.- all with Skywatcher 200p

M27: 30x 30sec per channel at gain 139

Pelican: 20×30 sec per channel of RGB, 80×60 sec Ha all at gain 250
