Hi, Inspired by Forum Member Xiga, after seeing his fine image of M101 on 22 March 2019, I just couldn't wait to get an image of the Pinwheel Galaxy. My image was taken on 27/03/2019 with my Orion ED80 Refractor and Canon 450D, on my NEQ6Pro mount. ( As usual, at present, my images don't have enough hours put into them yet, because I am still figuring out how to plate-solve with APT ! Once I get plate-solving under my belt, I will start to get more data, hours wise, into my images ). My image below is approx 1 hours worth of light subs, composed of a mixture of mainly 70 sec lights, including some 60 sec lights and 40 sec lights, all at 1600ASA. I also incorporated 20 darks , 35 bias frames and 35 flat frames. Processed through APP and then GIMP. Regards, Steve
Hi, During the 3 clear nights in a row, I had last week, I could not resist giving the Horsehead Nebula a go, using my Vixen VC200L. Whilst imaging with my Canon 450D via APT, I could not make out the Horse's head whatsoever on my laptop screen, but I knew I was on target, because I could see NGC2023, at the bottom of my screen. Anyway I was pleasantly suprised with this result after processing through APP and tweaking in GIMP. Not the total failure I was expecting. Image Info:- Vixen VC200L Telescope Canon 450D camera unmodified ISO 1600 All I could do before fog ended the night:- x20 120 sec Lights, x20 100 sec Lights, x10 80 sec Lights, x10 40 sec Lights x21 Darks, x40 Bias and x40 Flats Processed in APP Regards, Steve
M42 Orion and NGC1977 Running man nebulas taken using a Skywatcher Equinox ED120 on an NEQ6 Pro mount and imaged using Backyard EOS and a modified Canon 450D DSLR. Thanks to Chris E and Warren N in Lincoln for inviting me down for the weekend (clear skies). This is a picture I have always wanted to capture since I was a kid.
Hi, Very pleased with my first ever attempt at imaging M31. Photo taken with my Orion ED80 Refractor, and Canon 450D DSLR at ISO 1600. Only scraping the surface "exposure wise", I know, with 48 Lights (composed of mainly 60 sec subs, with some 30 sec subs thrown in as well). 7 Darks, 20 Flats ,20 Bias Image processed from start to finish with Astro Pixel Processor (APP), of which I have just started a 30 day free trial. I am VERY impressed with APP, after experiencing lots of frustration with DSS and GIMP. Excited of what may be possible , when I begin to expose for longer periods of time., which I intend to do as a gain more experience. Regards to all Steve
