Subject:Pleiades/Subaru
Author: Sander O. Pool
Scope: Megrez 110ED
Instruments:WO FR-III flattener, QHY-8 camera, IDAS-LPS filter, EQ6 mount (EQMOD controlled)
Exposure time:26 10 minute exposures (total: 4 hours, 20 minutes)
Place & Seeing:My front yard in Ridgefield, CT (1 hour from NYC), new moon but high humidity which affected transparency.
Date:10/3/2008
Remarks:I am a 41 year old software engineer. I got re-acquainted with astronomy about 4 years ago and started with visual observing. I've been imaging since August 2007 (see earliest images on my site http://gallery.tungstentech.com/main.php?g2_itemId=693). I purchased the M110 around Christmas 2007 and the QHY8 a few months later. Both have been instrumental in my progress. I try to give back to the community that has taught me so much by writing astronomy related articles on my website (http://www.tungstentech.com/) and taking pictures of astronomy related projects for my gallery http://gallery.tungstentech.com/main.php. I also wrote some small parts of the EQMOD driver for the EQ6.
