M45 and The Leo Trio-Friday Night Under the Lights

Hello Geeks,

Over the weekend I was able to gather some photons of a couple targets I needed to check of my QHY8 list.

The first one is of M45, I really enjoy this target and have yet to get a super image of it but do plan on adding longer and deeper exposures to this set in the near future.



10x400 seconds subs

LPS filter

Darks and bias subtracted


The next target of the night was the Leo Trio. Not satisfied with my 400 seconds subs from M45 I increased this set to 600 seconds, my guiding was going good and I had of good sky so I went for it.

details are the same as above only with 10 minute subs

Here is a cropped version of the trio.
