M57 and IC1296

ASI224MC set to capture 600x6 seconds. Also 25 darks at the start and end of the run. The camera was attached to 12" Dobo with a 2xPowermate.

Processed with DSS + Paintshop Pro X9 and was pleased with the extra detail I got with M57 compared to my previous efforts. I then noticed another galaxy had appeared that has never shown up on any of my previous captures. It is IC1296 and is a 15.5 magnitude object, so demonstrates the sensitivity that can be achieved now. [Neill Mitchell]
