This is a photo of the Milkyway around Sagittarius and the center of our galaxy. This image was taken with a unmodded Canon 7D and a 24-105mm Lens set at 24mm and consists of a stack of 18 x 20 second subs taken at ISO6400. No tracking, just a camera pointed up on a standard tripod. The night I was imaging this, Sagittarius was at near zenith on a particularly clear night.
Hi All, Sharing with you my latest pic, it's been a while since I was imaging since I have been stuck at the eyepiece for the last few outings... and my imaging gear won't see light until my obsy, aka modified shed, is complete. During a particularly clear and transparent night, just after packing up my Dob, I took out the DSLR and grabbed a few subs of the Galactic center in Sagittarius... At the top right is Scorpio stinger, center frame is Sagittarius and bright "star" far left middle frame is Saturn. Few nebulae are visible in the exposure, Lagoon, Trifid and the Cats Paw... Taken using just the unmodded Canon 7D with a 24-105mm lens set at 24mm (no scope) for 6 minutes, 18 x 20sec ISO6400 Subs... I thought it turned out not bad from my backyard for a last minute quickie after packing up. Clear skies, Mariusz
Hi SGL, I started this galactic center project last year, but ended up changing objects due to time constraints. So far I have a lot more Lum data, but here are the bottom 2 rows of just RGB. Its 90mins of RGB data, with the Tak FSQ106N and the 11000 Atik. This is a 5x2 mosaic, and I hope to get more data next Summer to finish this and make it a 5x5 image. From B72 up to the Eagle, taken from Spain. This is my last picture from my adventures over there. Not fully processed, yet I want to wait until I have the entire RGB mosaic complete before I start the colour tweaks, balancing, micro curves etc... This just had a crop, curve push and some rough colour saturation applied. No real subtlety to the process on my end. I'll post the Lum data later when I have played with it a little more.
