M33 from 4th Nov

Recommended Posts

I've been wrestling with M33 for a couple of months now, and had another go on Sunday night.

Subs: 10x 1min iso800, 10x 1min iso1600, 10x 2min iso800, 5x2min iso1600 RAWS - Canon 20D (unmodded)

via William Optics ZS80II ED scope on EQ6 Pro (unguided) Processed DSS & PS with Noels Actions

Would help if I could reliably get longer subs but at least this one is better than my previous attempts.

Will probably try again with more subs if poss.

Cheers

Mark

Many thanks for the encouraging words, guys! :D

I'm still getting the hang of the processing side and M33 was pretty tricky.

Am now approaching the big crossroads of whether to go for a guided setup with 'proper' ccd cam (budget & missus permitting)....

cheers

That is one very nice image Mark, well done!!.

As I've said before, although M33 is quite a large 'target', its not ane easy one to get the best from, and you have produced a nice result.
