  2. From the album: Kevin Hurleys Deep Space Objects

    First attempt at imaging Andromeda galaxy. It doesn't fit fully in the frame. Captured 40x 30s subs of lights plus 10 darks and 7 flats. Stacked in Deep Sky Stacker for total of 14min 45s. Processed in Startools but struggled to get the colour looking right.
  3. From the album: Kevin Hurleys Deep Space Objects

    M45 Pleiades. Captured using Nikon D3200 at prime focus of Skywatcher 150P on EQ3-2 with RA motor tracking (no guiding). Total of 79 x 10s subs at ISO 800 aligned and stacked in DeepSkyStacker to give 7min 20s. Processed in StarTools. Thin and high cloud for some of the subs. Taken at 3:30am on Sunday morning Aug 30, 2020.
  4. From the album: Kevin Hurleys Planet andLunar images

    Comet Neowise. 19th July at 22:54, near Bath. Taken with Nikon D3200 using kit lens at 55mm (F/5.6). Piggy-back on Skywatcher EQ3-2 mount. Single 60s exposure at ISO400. Stretched in GIMP.
  5. From the album: Kevin Hurleys Deep Space Objects

    Wide angle shot of Milky Way in Cygnus. 10 min total (4 subs of 2.5 min each) at ISO 100. Nikon D3200 with kit lens at 18mm (f/5.6). Tracking on a skywatcher 150p EQ3-2 mount - no guiding.
  6. From the album: Kevin Hurleys Deep Space Objects

    M65, M66 and NGC 3628 - The Leo Triplet. Photographed on May 14. Skywatcher 150P with a Nikon D3200 at prime focus. EQ3-2 mount with RA motor drive (no guiding). 19 subs at ISO 800 - 30s each. Aligned and stacked in Deep Sky Stacker to give resulting 4min 30s exposure. Processed in Startools to crop, bin, stretch and colour balance. This was my second time around to process this image - starting to get the hang of Startools now.
  7. From the album: Kevin Hurleys Deep Space Objects

    M13 taken with Nikon D3200 at prime focus of my Skywatcher 150p mounted on EQ3-2 with RA motor drive (no guiding). 12 subs (30s each) aligned and stacked in DSS for total of 180s. Processed in startools - binned, cropped and stretched.
  8. From the album: Kevin Hurleys Deep Space Objects

    M51. Skywatcher 150P with Nikon D3200 at prime focus. EQ3-2 mount with RA motor. Unguided. 10 x 30s subs - aligned and stacked with DSS into a 2min 30s exposure at ISO 800. Post-processed with Startools - binned, cropped, stretched and colour balanced. This is an updated processing of previous image posted here.
  9. From the album: Kevin Hurleys Deep Space Objects

    M27, the Dumbbell Nebula. Using Nikon D3200 at prime focus of my 150mm aperture F/5 Skywatcher 150P on EQ3-2 with RA drive and no guiding. 5min exposure from best 10 of 20 30s subs, aligned and stacked in DSS. Post processing using Startools - stretched, binned, cropped and colour balanced.
  10. From the album: Kevin Hurleys Deep Space Objects

    M57 Ring Nebula. Nikon D3200 at prime focus of a skywatcher 150p. Mount is EQ3-2 unmodified with RA motor drive and no guiding. 3min30s exposure at ISO100 after aligning and stacking in DSS. Post-processed in Startools to stretch, crop, bin and colour-balance. Quite a moonlit night and sky not fully dark. Will go back and try again another time.
  11. Hi again! I finished what was for me the most difficult image so far - M81 and M82. I made this with 75X 4 minute exposures at ISO 800. I shot it from my site in Berkeley, so I had to deal with heavy light pollution that made catching the spiral arms the biggest challenge I've faced with imaging yet. Overall, I am pretty happy wit this image. I'm not sure if my camera (a nikon D3200) can do better given my conditions and setup (8" Orion Newtonian Astrograph, Orion SSAG, and an Orion Atlas mount). If you can think of any ways to improve let me know! Enjoy!

  13. Hi! I've been imaging from my new spot at UC Berkeley. The astronomy department gave me keys to the roof for astro imaging purposes, and even though it's a heavily light-polluted spot, I'm very happy with the results! Over the past week, I've been able to get some decent (by my newbie standards) shots of the Horsehead & flame nebula, as well as the Leo Triplet. The Horsehead nebula is made with 4 minute subframes at ISO 800, for about 3 hours and 8 minutes of total exposure time. The Leo Triplet is also made of 4 minute subframes at ISO 800, for a total of 2 hours and 46 minutes. I've included some closeups of the individual galaxies from the triplet as well. I did some serious layer masks on these guys, but I'm not sure if that counts as cheating!! :'D Please let me know what ways you think of for me to improve, and what you think I should keep doing! I took these with a Nikon D3200, an 8" Orion Newtonian Astrograph on Orion Atlas mount. I use an Orion SSAG on a 50mm guide scope. I'm using a 2" Astronomik CLS filter as well. Thanks, and enjoy!!!
