Widefield M31


Recommended Posts

First attempt at astrophotography with a Canon EOS1000d. I brought it second hand of fleabay without any lenses and used an old Tessar 50mm @ f4 piggy backed on my Astromaster 130eq. 

20 x 15 sec Darks  

20 x 10 sec Lights 

20 x 15 sec Lights

19 x 25 sec Lights

Plus flats all at iso 800 and stacked in DSS and a quick play in PS.


Please be gentle with me!!!

That's a good start. You can tell it's a fuzzy. Much better than my first attempt at M31. If you can connect the 1000D to your refractor you'll get even better shots and closer too. Keep up the good work. You're on the slippery slope now of AP! :help:
