A CCD Messier Run March 7, 2004.

This is a coulage of images I took March 7, 2004 between seven to eleven pm. I think the moon ran me off about eleven. These 22 images were taken rather hurriedly. This is a screen shot with all the images having some preprocessing performed for clarity. Some are flipped and some are not. the shortest exposure is 30 seconds and the longest 60 seconds. Some are up to five images added together. I will try and get around to making a special page with their full sizes and descriptions available. I may add them to my messier section. Yes I cheated and used the GOTO system.

Optics: Celestron C8 SCT, Fastar adapter (f1.95)

Camera: SBIG ST-237

Mount: Loamandy G11 with Gemini GOTO
