Deep Field. Hybrid Missions. Typically used for Photometry and Imaging. FITS and TIF file formats. Dark Frame calibration data is available for 60, 120, 180, 300, 600 second exposures. Binx1 - Binx2. Raw data can be found at data.itelescope.net.
- Recommended Maximum Exposure 300 seconds.
- T30 is fitted with a 0.66 Focal reducer.
- The Planewave Ascension 200HR mount is so accurate whilst tracking that iTelescope Admin have disabled active guidance, with a corresponding decrease in session setup time when imaging.
- Note: T30 is fitted with a very sensitive Non Anti Blooming Gate (NABG) CCD. Beware of long exposures on moderate to bright stars or targets and use a bracket of short exposures or use software to repair any blooming artifacts.
