Description

The weather is not the best there is since september here (for astronomy) , and it's difficult to take picture during the all night. Here is a single light taken 17 september, found in my "technical rushes" ( "hayloft" ) , I was checking collimation, polar alignment, and also the result on picture at the end.

I feel suprised by the "signal" captured. NGC6960 is really a shiny object and L-enhance filter helped to get a better signal .

Camera was not cooled (+10 degres) , I think that autoguiding was off (not sure of this), no dark, bias offset and no flat. A single light. A nice object for summer 2021 !

Hope to get a better clear night skies in december, without moon ;-))
