Grande Aigrette la toilette - Orion ED80T CF Triplet, Q7

Long time no see,
As usual I'll go straight

New gear, please have a look here on my previous thread with the MEADE :
https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/136-pentax-q/287244-q7-telescope-triplet-apo-ed.html

Both are 480mm F6 so 2208mm F6 eq. 35mm film with the Q7
The EDT is better corrected for the A.C. (purple fringing)

Please read Bernall's posts for explanations.

Warning : Many images, its a kind of a timelapse
Speed between 1/125 s et 1/500 s.
Distance : much more than 60m
Light or zero pp. Sharpening for web images.

Awesome capture. What does "sharpening for web image" involve?

Thx for sharing.

Hi 99exp.,
Quick & simple : I use the default setting of Picasa under "sharpen" with 800x600 pix. images.
You just have to bypass the compression of web forums.
The telescope is tack sharp

Making Of :
(smartphone)






"x" for Distance.
I use Manual exposure (usually -0,7 EV) and a remote wireless
