  • SBIG ST8-XME camera attached to telescope
  • Aligned to Capella
  • MaxIm DL Pro 5 opened
  • 4 filters used -Luminance, Red, Green, Blue, (none for test)
  • 3 types frame possible: dark (chip connected but no light going to it), bias(no exposure), light(exposed)
  • 4x4 binnning continuous view of Capella, focused manually
  • Used Stellarium to drive telescope to star at RA: 5h18m55.55s DE: +46 02 19.1" Magnitude: 9.85 B-V: -0.06
  • 4x4 binning light frame
  • Identified M110 in Stellareium and manually drove telescope
  • Set cooler to -10 degrees
  • Moved to 22 Tau and Asterope
  • Took images at varied exposure times until saturation
  • Took images with various filters until saturation
