Peter Shah posted a topic in Widefield,Took my son camping to Shell Island (Wales U.K.) the weather was great but started to haze over when I took this. A shot of my boy pointing up at the Milky Way on the beach. Taken with my Sony A7s, exposure 20s at f5.6 51000 iso.
8472 posted a topic in Deep Space Objects (DSOs),WO ZS61, FF + 2x ED Barlow (yes, frowned upon, i know)
SWSA, no guiding.
About 8 hours+ total integration, plus obligatory calibration frames.
Processed in Startools and GIMP.
For the past few weeks I've been thinking of adding more data, but at 720mm fl, unguided and no Oiii filter, I'll think I'll draw a line under it.
Derbyshire Dave posted a topic in Deep Space Objects (DSOs),This is the nebulosity in the Cygnus constellation around Sadr (Gamma Cygni- the bright star in the shot)
I took this two nights ago.
Modified Canon 1300D plus a CLS light pollution filter. Ten 3 minute exposures at ISO 800, 5 darks and 15 bias files were added. So 30 minutesonly, could have done with some more time on it..
I think that the star cluster at the bottom of the picture is the open cluster NGC 6910, if anyone could confirm that I'd appreciate it..
philjay posted a topic in Deep Space Objects (DSOs),A bit more today on the NGC 3586 project. This is 20mins Ha, 20 mins S2 and 10mins O3 as RGB using the TakFSQ at Sidings Springs
I was hoping to get another 10 minutes O3 but the roof shut due to cloud part way through the last run. Will get some more later but this is it so far
Our American friends call the central bit the Statue of Liberty Nebula 🤠
Derbyshire Dave posted a topic in Deep Space Objects (DSOs),Finally got my act in gear and went out with my new modified 1300D a couple of nights ago.
I've had it a while but summer lethargy had hit I think, but a sight of the summer triangle earlier in the week spurred me into action.
It was late by the time it was dark enough, and the clouds came in early, so managed 10 x 2 minute exposures at ISO 800. No darks etc, and no
guiding, but still pleased to have got something. I took a shot of this last year with my unmodified Canon M5, and got no hints of the red at all..
