    well after another clear sky last night I was out early and set up to make the most of it deciding to shoot a target in the well known constellation Cassiopeia called the pacman nebula is a bright emission nebula and is about 9,600 light years away. shot with skywatcher 130pds scope 9x50 guide scope and asi 120mc guide camera all mounted on a heq5 skywatcher equatorial mount and shooting with a canon 450d astro modded camera using a uhc filter in my back garden . 2 hours and 45 mins of data . again comments welcome I have used a star mask for the first time after last image seemed to loose some star colour so anymore advice hints tips or even critics will be taken on board PS this is a jpeg of image thanks stuart

  6. Well with this cold snap hitting us it was time to make the most of last night's cystal clear skies shooting out my back garden astroback yard style. First target I choose was a little too low in the sky so I decided on a object high up in the constellation auriga shooting the nebula flaming star using a heq5 tracking mount skywatcher 130pds scope guided Canon modded 450d 30x5 min subs 10x5 darks 20x lights 10 bias frames Total 2.45 hours OK so I no its not the best and personally I feel there is more detail to pullout of the image so any help or tips would be appreciated it was edited via photoshop and used astronomy tools action set
