Default ASTRO: Hercules galaxy cluster

Also from last night with the small Newton is this picture of the galaxy
cluster in Hercules (Abell 2151). As to be expected from a galaxy cluster
quite a few of fuzzies can be seen.

Taken from the middle of Berlin with a 6" f/5 Newton, SXV-H9 camera, G11
mount, 43x3 minutes.

The picture can also be found at www.slilge.de/temp/6050hercules43x3gut.jpg

I never tried this one with the 6". I need to redo it with the 14". It
was taken when I had lots of flex in my focuser -- Meade's focuser for
the LX200R series is too weak for the STL camera's and was quickly
replaced. No way to hold the camera in alignment so one corner or edge
was always severely out of focus. Though the night I took it was far
better than average seeing so may be hard to equal anyway. Still I want
to add color to it.

Much easier to frame with the 6" however! You caught quite a few more
than I was able to.

Looks like you got some good optics in that scope... detail and fast too...
great FOV.
