Object: M92

Date: June 25, 2001

Exposure(s): 20 Min & 15 Min

Film: Kodak LE400

Equipement: 10" f/10 Meade OTA w/Lumicon GEG in the "f/6.5" position (Actual FL = 1890mm)

Autoguider: SBIG ST-4 (A8's).

Camera: Minolta X-700

Hardware & Software: HP S20xi film scanner & Hamrick Vuescan 7.1.1. The scans, processed, cropped, and then digitally stacked using Picture Window 3.0. Ahhh! Finally an image that is tracked well enough, in focus, and in the frame. It looks like the ST-4, G-11, and GEG are finally working with each other. This image represents what is in my mind a real break-thru. For five months I had been learning the ST-4 and tweaking the G-11. The bearing mods on the G-11 seem to have done the deed. Now its time to relax a little and just take astrophotos...

Info: M92.
