Nope, THIS is my best M13 so far...

I added a sub, toyed with the luminance a bit and generated this:

ASTRONOMY%20-%20M13%20STACKED%20CAPTION%

You can see more stars near the core, a more present image overall. I'm stoked  :grin:

Clear skies,

Thanks for the support, guys. I'm getting better at this. Trying not to get into the expensive gear, haha. For me, observing is still paramount to imaging, but being able to capture some celestial objects can be fun!

Great shot Reggie, however, its hard to resist buying more gear  :grin:

Ohhhhh, Johnny, don't say that! AHHHHHHH! :p

You're on such a slippery slope now :)

I started trying to image M13 with my 127 Mak on an EQ3-2 a few years back.  I wasn't happy about the number of lost subs, so I ended up getting the HEQ5 Pro.  But I still had quite a few subs with trailing.  So I added a guide cam and guide scope.

Then all of a sudden, without really realising it, you're hooked on the hard stuff like planetary nebulae.

Take it from someone who knows :D

Ohhh! This imaging stuff is like an addiction! :grin:

I'm trying to avoid buying a dual axis drive for my Skyview Pro 180 and a MALLINCAM. Oh, no, the thought has already crossed my mind. I'm doomed...

      M13 - Great Globular Cluster in Hercules from 06/09/2018 22,180 light years away, 145 light years wide Quite a close crop on this due to its scale in my scope, but happy nonetheless. Looks like better flats are definately helping me out now when it comes to processing. The only thing I couldn't work out is the faint fuzzy at around 2 o'clock. With a bit more research it looks like it is the spiral galaxy NGC6207 (distance 30 million light years) - and VERY faintly you can just make out IC4617 (489 million light years away) TS65Q / Modded 1200D / EQ6 Guided - 83x30s

      Hi all!
      Few days ago i tried imaging a deep sky object for the first time, so i tried m13 as an easy first target, I used took 7  lights, out of witch i selected 3 for stacking, and used 5 darks. DSS only selected 1 frame out of the 3 and stacked that. The result wasn't that good but then again....it's the first time i'm doing this. Settings were iso 6400, 15 second exposure, auto WB. I have also been having this problem, when my telescope slews to a target, it's always to the left of the frame and that was a bummer since i had to crop my picture. Please give me your advice and feedback, Clear skies!
