So this is my first attempt at the Bubble Nebula ( NGC 7635 ) which required the use of my Celestron EdgeHD8″ scope. I utilized a Nikon Z6 and a OAG in order to image and guide through the SCT without worry of mirror flop and other such issues.
Overall I’m happy with this first attempt, although I think ISO8000 at F10 was far to aggressive (it works a lot better at f4 and faster scopes) so my next attempts will be back at ISO800 where I know the camera performs magnificently in the warmer weather.
This represents 46.5 minutes of integration at iso 8000
Also in other fun news, cleaning out the garage today I found my old single fork Celestron NextStar SE mount… so I guess that makes outreach far easier to pack for in the future.
