Backyard 'Deepfield' Image


Recommended Posts

Spent another cloudy night looking at the iconic HST images and I wondered has anyone tried to make their own version of the Hubble Deepfield image, i.e. Imaging the same piece of apparently empty sky and logging up some serious exposure time to see how deep they can go? 

I suppose it would be a criminal waste of precious imaging time in the UK but maybe some SGL members around the world blessed with better skies might have given it a try?

I get a real buzz from imaging a well known object and finding tiny faint galaxies emerging from the background, I would love to know how far back and distant we can go.......
