Machholz - short stack

Posted By Joe Baldwin

This was taken 1/8/05 under unusually good conditions. Machholz was an easy naked-eye object on this night. This is a quick stack of 4 images.

ST80 piggy-backed on C9.25/CI-700. Canon 20D set at ISO 3200. 30 second unguided exposures with dark noise reduction turned on.

Re: Clear CCD condensation upon cooling

Posted By Joe Baldwin

The old cookbook cameras used a simple trick, the ccd and peltier are enclosed in an airtight chamber with an optical window and the cold finger was designed so that the moisture in the air collected and froze there first so that the air was below the dewpoint at the ccd.

80mm APO vs C8

Posted By Joe Baldwin

There is an article describing first light with an 80mm Megrez APO in the reviews sections and the author maintains that the more planetary details was visible in the 80mm than an 8"SCT. While I've never actually looked through that scope, it seems strange that it could compete with even an average quality 8" scope. Anybody have a similar experience?
