NGC891 - KM7D
Object: NGC891

Date: October 15, 2006

Location: "Bear Bluff" Near Mayfield, Michigan

Exposure(s): 10x 6 Min @ 400ISO

Camera: Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D

Equipement: 10" f/10 Meade OTA w/GEG and focal reducer at f/7.5 on Losmandy G-11

Guide Scope: ETX90 OTA and SBIG ST-4

Software & Processing: RAW image files were dark frame subtracted and converted to Tif files using my RawCore test converter. The Tifs were then aligned and stacked using Registar 1.0.7 and then processed and cropped using Picture Window Pro.

Other Notes: First time I had a chance to try my 7D from a fairly dark site. I needed to take a few more dark frames but the focus and tracking were very nearly perfect.

Info: NGC891 is also often called "The Edge On Galaxy".
