Caldwell 47 (NGC 6934)

Globular Cluster in Delphinus      RA 20h 34m 11s  Dec +07° 24' 16"

Mike Lancaster captured this image of Caldwell 47 on the 21st August 2023. The image comprises 65 x 20s exposures taken using an Altair Hypercam 26C at 100 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 used on account of the short exposures. Images were acquired using SharpCap, and the processing was entirely performed in PixInsight.   Image Credit: Mike Lancaster.

Setup was guided using a Lodestar guide camera on a piggy-backed 80mm APO. Image capture was using Miloslick Mallincam Control, stacking and processing in Nebulosity with further processing in Photoshop Elements.   Image Credit: Mike Lancaster.
