and a faint glow around the pleiades themselves,
Curiously, the satellite trail to the upper right is now gone ??

Anthony and Michael,
Both super efforts!
Michael - your stacked images looks much better now. Interesting how the negatives can show up faint detail, especially around the Pleiades.
Anthony - If these are just "test" pictures, I'd love to see your "proper" ones! :)
Clear skies,

Dave,

The satellite on the upper right was in a different image. I took a secquence of images at a the same settings and zoom setting and used these for the second set of images. I thought that stacking would remove the satellite as it was obviously only in one image.

Well, I just wasn't happy with either avatar I had before, and after the discussion before regarding puting in a pic as an avatar (abit too much, its not done anywhere), this is the best next thing ?!?

Dear Friends,

An additional test example from this evening's session is now available at www.perseus.gr/Astro-Comets-2004-Q2-Machholz.htm . I have to spend some time tomorrow processing the second batch taken using my Canon EOS 300d and EOS EF II 100-300 mm zoom (set at 200 mm).

Tomorrow evening is it as far as getting the procedure down pat given the closest proximity to M45 occurs then.

Best wishes to everyone for clear skies ... and I will follow-up with actual "production photos".

Anthony.

(weather permitting)!


Well, its just past 6:30pm, and I think I can safely say that this one small, significant astronomical event, can be written off... 2 inches of rain for the night still to come on top of the almost 2 inches already falling all day, and the 85mph winds....


...think I might stay in tonight...
