Comet 17/P Holmes


Yet Another Picture of Comet 17/P Holmes. This is the first picture taken with my 6" Newtonian telescope, since I have rebuilt it with a light-weight three-truss tube.

This was processed very quicky, there seems to be something wrong with the dark frames, I will reprocess the image, and see what is wrong.


Telescope:
150mm f/5 Newtonian Telescope
Camera
Nikon D200
Exposure:
8x120s, ISO 800
Date:
18th, November 2007
Processing:
Stacking, dark subtraction in IRIS, Histogram adjustment, sharpening in Photoshop.

This is an image of the 6-inch as it looked while I took the picture above, the black cardboard was used for shielding against stray light and will be replaced by something more durable.
