    I have been imaging using my SkyWatcher Startravel 102mm refractor on a Go-To Synscan alt-az mount and Canon 600D DSLR since just before Christmas 2015. Having since read, "Astrophotography on the Go" by Joseph Ashley I have been inspired to use longer exposures, typically 30 seconds at ISO 1600 and to take more images per object (up to 200 light frames) weather permitting. I use Deep Sky Stacker to collate frames and subsequently process the master image using StarTools. I hope this album of images shows improvement upon my earlier attempts. Since April 2017 I have been using a SkyWatcher Star Adventurer (SA) mount on an old Celestron heavy duty tripod to image DSO's with my Canon DSLR. At Christmas 2017 I received a modified Canon 700D DSLR and an Astronomik clip-in Ha 12nm filter to complement my UHC filter. I am continually impressed by the accuracy of the little SA mount. In January of 2018 I began using my old CG-5 Go-To mount to take images and later swapped the original Celestron polar scope for an modern SkyWatcher type which has made polar alignment faster and more accurate.

    I have Celestron Nexstar 8 SE, alt-az mount. I take pictures and videos with my Huawei P10 smartphone with ocular projection, used 25mm plössl eyepiece. It gives 80x magnification, that's not bad for Messier objects. They can be captured only with one shot. Of course with this one shot comes not so many details, as it does with stacked images. Somehow I would say, these pictures looks like the really look through a telescope, for example a sketch.

    Shot @ISO 1600 50x30 Seconds Subs Next time I'll shoot around 100-150 subs to hopefully bring in more detail.

    These are some of my best shots from different places in Perú. Winter season here is excelent for deepsky shots, specially from the mountains, were light pollution is very low, the air is dry, and the altitud varies from 3000 to 4000 meters over sea level. Some of these shots were done with my old Celestron Nexstar 6SE and my first astrocamera, a ZWO ASI 174 MC color camera. My latest shots were done with my new telescope, a Celestron EDGE 8 HD and a CGEM mount. I bought a new cam too! A ZWO ASI 071. My milky way landscape shots where done with a Sony a7s, and 3 lenses: Samyang 14 mm, Samyang 50 mm, and Rokinon 85 mm. Hope you like them!

    Just before Christmas 2015 I began taking photographs of DSO's using my SkyWatcher Startravel 102mm refractor, alt-az mount and Canon 600D DSLR. To date all images except the Rosette Nebula have been taken using ten second exposure lengths and at ISO 1600. Image processing uses Deep Sky Stacker and StarTools software.
