Description

Before I went outside I decided that I would try and image IC 2177 the Seagull Nebula and
IC 1805 the Heart Nebula. I did a select and slew to both of these objects and took several
test images using different iso settings and exposures. I could not see IC 2177 in my test
images. My mount could not find IC 1805. I've searched for this object before and the mount
keeps putting me on the Double Cluster which is near IC 1805 but not on it. I didn't want
to waste any more time so I decided to image M67. I've never imaged this cluster and I
need an image of M67 for an on going Messier Project. Please enjoy my first image of
M67.
