captured Arrakis in 1 sec

BGO shot the star SAO 30242 with the luminance filter (ID 1260). The fastest exposure yet. Also constrained by a higher minimum altitude: 60 degrees this time (all others were at 40).

μ Draconis at the top-right. Looks like a clean image: no trailing, no shaking. The C component is visible below the elongated AB pair! [ed: C appears to be in the magnitude 13 to 14 range.]

1 second. North is up; east is left.

Better than the 2 second image from last night. Can I go faster than 1.0 seconds?


Yes. Did it in half the time.
