Comet Lovejoy and Pleiades M45

Recommended Posts

I was using my XSi on a tripod but was testing out an old Pentax SMC 135mm f/2.8 lens . The comet is a stack of 22 images and 2 darks averaging 5-8 secs . Anything more I had star trails . M45 is 24 images and 2 darks . Both shot at 1600 ISO . These may not be the best images but I think the lens is definitely a keeper . Pictures would be much better had I been piggybacking my scope so I could do longer exposures .
