This morning's conjunction

Postby Gfamily2 » Sun Jan 07, 2018 10:14 pm

Up at 6am to try and catch the Mars/Jupiter conjunction.
Didn't fancy spending the time out to do an alignment, so this is using a 102mm f/12.7 Mak on an untracking mount.
1s exposure at 1600 ISO

I'm just getting a 'stop' sign here :?
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.

That better?

I'd moved it to a 'public' album, but I'd not used the 'public' URL for the pic

Still the same. I have tried refreshing the cache but it is still not allowing it. I tried downloading the image directly but I get the same 'stop sign' :(
