Eskimo Nebula Hubble Pallet

Eskimo Nebula Hubble Pallet

Object ID: Eskimo Nebula in Gemini

This is the first Tricolor Narrowband we tried. Also this is the Auto-guided result on Losmandy G11, as we got GPUSB working for it. With GPUSB, Losmandy mount can be auto guided with any camera else one need to use ST4 compatible cameras to give direct signals to mount.

We decided to be ambitious and used Meade 12 F/10 SCT with Lumicon 0.6x reducer, though the results are acceptable they are not upto the mark. We need to fine tune mount to get good results at this great focal length. Will try next time again.
