NGC 206 – And
Here, it was imaged with the Planewave 17, part of the Virtual Telescope Project. A total of 17 exposures, with 5 minutes of integration each, were averaged. Images were unguided, completely trusting the Paramount ME mount. The CCD camera is a SBIG STL-6303E. The image scale is of 0.78 “/pixel.
It is amazing to see how our telescope sharply resolved those 2.5 light years far away stars, thanks to its superb optics and, of course, to the superior seeing quality of the observing site.
