With the moon now rising much later a return to deep sky was possible again. I noticed that my previous attempt at NGC 281 (The Pacman Nebula) had been with the apo so I thought I would try the Newtonian on it for a more detailed view. NGC 281 is in Cassiopeia and contains the open cluster IC 1590 and a number of Bok globules (according to Wiki). Though the transparency was good I didn't quite capture the fainter extremes so I think a darker sky away from MK would have been needed to do much better. The guiding was working well throughout the session so quite a pleasing result. Details: 10" f4.3 Newt. 15 x 10 minute exposures @ iso1600 with CLS in DSS, FIV, CS2 & XAT.
