Mike Lancaster captured this image of M15 the 10th November 2023. The image comprises 101 x 10 second exposures taken using an Altair Hypercam 26C camera at 300 gain (plus darks, flats and flat darks), through an Orion Optics UK AG12 Astrograph mounted on an EQ8 mount. A 0.95x Wynne Corrector and Astronomik CLS-CCD filter were also employed. No guiding was required for these short exposures. Images were acquired using SharpCap, and the processing was entirely performed in PixInsight. Image Credit: Mike Lancaster.




This image of M15 was captured by Mike Lancaster on the 17th October 2022. It is a stack of ten unguided 1 minute exposures taken with a Mallincam Universe camera at 20 dB gain and full resolution using an Orion Optics UK AG12 telescope, 0.95x Wynne corrector, IDAS LPS-D3 filter, and EQ8 mount. The images were stacked in Deep Sky Stacker with some processing in Nebulosity and Photoshop Elements. This was Mike's 'first light image' using this particular combination of scope and camera.

Mike Lancaster captured this image of M15 on the 7th September 2021. It is a stack of ten 90 second exposures taken with a Mallincam Universe camera at 16 dB gain and 2x2 binning using a 0.5x Mallincam focal reducer on a 10" Meade LX200 ACF and EQ8 mount. Stacking and processing was performed in Nebulosity and Photoshop Elements. Image Credit: Mike Lancaster.




This image of M15 was taken by Mike Lancaster on the 14th November 2014. It is a stack of three 120 second exposures taken with a Mallincam Xtreme X2 camera at AGC2 using an Astronomik CLS-CCD filter through a 10" Meade LX200 ACF on an NEQ6 Pro mount. Setup was guided using a Lodestar camera through a piggybacked 80mm refractor. Stacking in Nebulosity and processing in Photoshop Elements. Image Credit: Mike Lancaster.
