I’ve always been tempted by the whole remote imaging thing, so I took the plunge and got a starter trial for iTelescope (www.itelescope.net)

This is 5 x 5 mins (25 mins) on the Carina Nebula I took at around 2am Australian time, which was bizarre to be able to do it during the day in the UK. A very quick process as well, but the data is so good it really doesn’t need much. I will get a bigger review up when I have more time, but this gives you an idea of what is possible.

Camera: SBIG STL-11000M with Baader 7nm Hα (-15°C)

Mount: Paramount PME
