M42 with ASI224MC

Post by robrj »

Done on a Celestron 130SLT (Alt/Az) and an ASI224MC with Sharpcap Pro 3.1 Beta. The software is performing well for me. Platesolving works great and is super fast (usually less than 10 seconds).

My computer is a Intel ComputeStick (2nd gen) 2gb ram/32gb storage with 64gb sd card.

(42x8s) Initally ran the gain at 350 for a few frames and then dropped it to 250 for the rest. The lower gain knocked down a lot of the brightness of the core.
