Had a fantastic night tonight! The clouds kept away and it was pretty dark! Managed to plow through quite alot of stuff, just 30 second exposures until I get my cable...

M57, Widefield, 1 minute exposure...

The stack ones, I'm sure more could be done with, I tried stacking with the raws and using a dark frame in deep sky stacker but it didn't give me anything worth using? Please, feel free to have a play around, the raws and jpgs are available at: http://iseestars.net/m57.zip (104mb)

Thanks,

Grant

Thanks guys :D

I was tempted to stay out longer but knew I'd spend hours processing so if I didn't stop then I wouldn't get any sleep!! Fantastic night, had chance to do some visual stuff too and got to show my dad M57 and M27 which he's never seen before :lol: Trusty old goto! He was a bit cynical about the goto at first but I think how quickly it found M57, M27 and M31 he's changed his mind :p

Thanks guys :D

Great edit Legion48! You've brought out a lot of extra colour there! I think I'm going to keep practicing at the processing side of things, its beginning to dawn on me that the processing is as hard as the capture!

Cheers,

Grant

Even though I have no idea what I'm doing I played around with the first image too :

I hope one day I can produce my own captures to mess around with :D
