M13 with a trail

Postby andrewscomputers » Fri Sep 14, 2018 9:01 pm

Hi all I took M13 the hercules cluster last week and managed to pick up a satelite trail in the first image.Then I stacked 30 images using deepskystacker at 10 seconds each,I used my skywatcher 80ed refractor with a 0.8 reducer.I used a gpcam290c camera for the images.Thanks for looking.

Nice images. I just searched gpcam290c, that's a very versatile camera.

That is really nice photo. It always looks like a beetle to me! :) Many of those 'legs' of brighter stars are reddish in colour in contrast with the masses of blue stars. That's easier to see than photograph though.

M13 is a good target for even the smallest telescope. It isn't a good winter object though, so now is the time to enjoy it. M92, another globular, of similar size, also in Hercules, is worth a look while the telescope is pointing in that area.
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.
