  1. Thank you all again!

    John: For the orion nebula I took around 100 pictures and for the whirlpool galaxy around 200 pictures (30 second exposure each) and I used pixinsight for stacking and processing.

    Not sure about the moon image anymore, but I used registax for stacking and processing.


  2. Thank you Carole, thank you davhei. Maybe one day I will stock up my equipment. Unfortunately, I couldn't afford anything better at the moment.

    These pictures were taken from my backyard, so I'm also interested in how much the quality will improve once I go out in a less light polluted area.


  3. Hey everyone,

     

    my name is Mike, I'm 26 years old and I wanted to buy a telescope since I was in school.

    A few months ago I finally purchased my very first telescope (Skywatcher 150/750 newtonian, eq3-2) and I wanted to be more active in this awesome community.

    Here are my very first captures I made this year :)

    I'm looking forward to whatever is next and I hope to learn from more experienced people in this forum.

    Cheers, Mike
