here is my last image, NGC281 taken with my fellow 155EDF, ST10XME and field flattener. And first real image 100% processed with my Vista laptop...
Taken on october 10th and 11th.
7nm Ha Baader, autoguiding 6 seconds.
35x10 minutes, Sigma Clip combine, processed in Photoshop, unsharpened! 8)
Seeing was quite poor, and with sudden changes, around 3 seconds the first night, around 2 seconds the second night, :S

Here is the webpage, and a link to the full image.

This is the first time that I use my Dell laptop to process my CCD images, so I was not sure with the result. But finally, I am quite pleased with the image on my main processing screen so I did not touch it further.

Comments are welcome, smile
