November 11, 1999

After the last experiment with M31 I thought I'd give it a try with more exposures. Also, I took the dark frames this time by waiting until I had gathered about 50 images, then defocusing the telescope for the next few. I'm not sure how well this'd work for a field that included any bright objects, but this one didn't and it worked fine.

Not bad, huh?

I then swung the scope over to Saturn, and discovered that the seeing was fantastic, so I figured I'd better give it a shot:


Successful night, I'd say.
