|Photos of The Week - February, 2017-April, 2017 - HaRGB single and
multi-panel images - Canon 6D and H694, Comets and Asteroid 5081
Sanguin time lapse. Plus ISS attempts with ASI174MM and C11.
|Comet 45P/Honda Image Stacks and Time Lapse - Surprise capture of Asteroid 5081 Sanguin
I was imaging 45P/Honda over a 2-3 hours period the other night and, when I did a short timelapse of the calibrated and registered images, I saw
something whose orbital period did not match any satellite or planet type over the 2-3 hour imaging period. By updating my databases and mapping
my image to The SkyX Pro, I determined (with the help of some pros) the object to be the 5081 Sanguin Asteroid. 5081 orbits in the asteroid belt, is
15.4km wide and has a 4 year orbital period around the sun. Discovered 1976 (the same year I got married - aww). Nothing further to see here!
ASI174MM, C11@prime (FL=2800), Captured with
Firecapture. Left is a single image/frame, right is a stack of
10 frames. Both are either overexposed or caught when on
the horizon. I will get this damn thing right one day!
ASI174MM @ prime (FL2800), Captured with Firecapture. AstroStakkert
V2, WinJupos and PS4 for processing.

FSQ-106 EDxiii at F5.0 - Cropped - PixInsight for processing.
|Below Left: The California Nebula - 8 hours total exposure, single frame.
Below Right: 3 Panel mosaic of the Spider and the Fly, the TadPole and the Flaming Star Nebulas. - HaRGB+HaLum method. 4 hours each panel.
Images from a Hutech modified Canon 6D in the Takahashi FSQ106 EDxiii (4 and 5 minute exposures @ ISO 800 and ISO 1600) were fully calibrated
and then registered with a stack of simultaneously imaged Hydrogen Alpha filtered images done using a side-by-side SXVR-H694 Camera with a
mounted EOS EF200 zoom @ FL200.
Mosaic integration and overall Processing was done with Pixinsight and finished in PS4. Presented as Ha-Red/Green/Blue + an Ha-Luminance layer
with some saturation enhancement done in PS4.
