Horsehead Nebula - Canon 600D (modified) with Skywatcher 150P and EQ 3-2. 12 min @ ISO800


First nebula imaged with my newly acquired Canon 600D (modded). Lots of struggles with tracking so only managed 20 subs x 30s of lights. Really pleased with the amount of red nebulosity that was captured in this short session though so looking forward to more to come in the future.

Processed using siril and startools.

Looks amazing.  What’s your thoughts on the camera?? 
I’m thinking of purchasing the 600d mod but before I commit to it I’m just trying to establish if it’s good enough etc.  thanks

@Nrmh02 oops - only noticed your comment now. I'm really impressed with the camera.  See my most recent photo of Rosette Nebula. Going from a Nikon to Canon has also been an eye opener - Backyard EOS software has made imaging much easier. One feature I've not tried yet on 600D is the 5x liveview mode for planetary imaging but am hopeful there too.
