Lagoon Tonight. I'm a happy camper.

Recommended Posts

This one took me hours to set-up, photograph and process, but I am extremely happy with my little ED80 and Canon 400 D set-up.

Lagoon Nebula 17 minutes at F/7.5 ISO800 Darks and offsets removed blah blah. Processed with Deep sky stacker.

Manually tracked using an illuminated reticule on fork mounted C11 (polar aligned on an equatorial wedge)with the camera on the ED80, piggybacking on top.

I think I'm getting the hang of this.......

Baz.

Flippin Awesome. I hope the powers that be in the POW department have their eyes on that (presuming Oz is not exempt purely on the grounds of Southern sky jelousy :D.)

That's fabulous Baz. Nice to see this as it doesn't really get high enough up for us to have a proper go at it. Manually tracking for minutes at a time must be hard work though.
