CCD Observations from Sunflower Observatory

What follows are some of the images made with my ST7 attached to the LX200 10" with F6.3 Focal reducer on the evening of February 7-8, 1998. I achieved a very good polar alignment and most of the images were 60 second exposures. They were processed with CCDOPS flat fielded, dark subtracted, and contrast enhanced.

desk The setup I now have is a 233 Pentium II on which I run The Sky to control my telescope. A Toshiba 133 Pentium to control my ST7 camera. Cables run out the window right now to the telescope in the backyard. Soon I will have a pier in the yard with buried conduit for the cabling.
