Let's see your 1st DSOs

Recommended Posts

This is my first DSO.  Single image M51 taken 20/7/20.  Evostar 120 and a Canon 600d.  I managed to get about 10 images but it was still early and with a streetlight less than 10m away there was loads of light polution.  Unfortunately I have been clouded in for over 2 months now so not able to do anything at all and now M51 is behind my house so this target will have to wait.  I most definitely have 'all the gear and no idea' now as managed to pickup an Evostar ED80, Evoguide 50, Altair 183c and IMX224 to go with my HEQ5 that the wife bought me for my birthday.  Just waiting for the clouds to clear (if ever) and I'll be plaguing you guys with questions as I try to work out how to use it, lol
