Day Star

Capturing stars during broad daylight is a little tricky, but the brightest ones can be seen. I tried for Betelgeuse, but it is too near the sun in the sky at the moment. I then went for Regulus in Leo, and I was more successful. This is a composite of 7 sharp images.

I use an 11" Celestron SCT (CPC 1100) on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 500D for imaging.
