M33 through the fog


Recommended Posts

Decided to try something completely different last night.

So I changed the rig around dusted off my old 350 D Canon and attached it to the back of the GT 81.

Purely as an experiment to see what it could do.


I must admit I was quite impressed.


This is the result of stacking the best 13 subs out of 26.


Gt 81

Canon 350 D modded

13 subs at 300 seconds

3 Darks

9 Flats


Stacked in DSS

quick lick in PS 6.


Bearing in mind the conditions of freezing fog and bright moonlight it didn't turn out too bad.

Impressive Graham,

I had a nightmare, swapped my cameras around also last night and ended up unable to get a guide star, buy the time I'd managed to get it going it was really foggy here.

Suppose it's part of the fun,

As a DSLR user myself, I am very impressed Graham! Perhaps add some data on a clearer night, bit of cropping in PS and it'll be a top image!!  :)

Very nice Graham considering the circumstances. I was watching Wonders of the Universe this morning and Mr Cox said exactly what I was thinking when I looked at your pic..imagine how big Andromeda will look in a couple of billion years..imagine imaging that.
