Description

While clouds rolled over, I took advantage of the Slooh Remote observatory to capture Markarian's Chain last night, for a total of just 18 minutes integration time x12 subs.

The Slooh Internet Controlled telescope is a RASA 11", Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph f/2.2 with a focal length of 11", and it uses a Celestron Nightscape 8300 Single-Shot-Color camera with a Kodak KAF-8300C chip in it.

Stacking of 100% of 12 subs done in Deep Sky Stacker. Processing via PixInsight, with finishing touch in PS: Astroflat Pro and final denoise in DxO PhotoLab 4.
