Fun with Messiers

Just a bit of fun learning how to use Voyager, and in particular the “Research and Survey” facility. I populated the RoboClip database with all 110 Messier objects, and then setup the “Exoplanet” script to take a single photo of each object above 25 degrees. Plate solve and RoboFocus before each exposure. The montage shows cropped photos of 24 of the nicest 30sec F2.4 540mm subs. Minimal processing with Pixinsight. Don’t expand or you’ll see my not so great collimation etc. At some point, I’ll have to come back to these and do them properly.


Thanks Steve … “Research and Survey” like you put in evidence is a great tools.
