M108 and M97 Owl Nebula + NGC4565

Recommended Posts

I was out till late last night but pleased with the result from a light polluted back garden in Reading. The pics were made up of 10x10 minute subs for NGC 4565 taken with BackyardEOS and my trusty 550D (unmodded). The tracking played up on the M108/97 pic so I stopped after 5 subs.

I have decided that I have not been taking long enough exposures and now adjust the exposure using the histogram on BackyardEOS with much better results needing minimal processing. I do not take darks, bias or flats as it takes enough time taking the lights but I will get around to experimenting more one day.

Now, what to do tonight as clear skies yet again.
