John Baker Posted January 3, 2017 Share Posted January 3, 2017 Managed to get out for my first astro shoot of 2017. Having taken 80 plus shots of bits of the sky, I think I have possibly managed to get one meteor in a frame... I was also experimenting with my iOptron SkyTracker which really struggles with a large pro DSLR, but rather chuffed with the results. Images processed in Lightroom and then Photoshop, working as layers to auto align, then converting to smart object to stack - with a final luminosity mask - I am yet to get to grips with the proper software OK this is a combination of 11 shots, this is looking along the Milky Way from the Pleiades or Seven Sisters (M45) down to Andromeda Galaxy (M31) - shot on Canon 1Dx, Tamron 15-30 at 15mm, ISO 4,000, 30" seconds at f2.8 Andromeda Galaxy also known as Messier 31 - shot with 1Dx, 70-200 f4 - ISO 6,400, f4, 30" Seconds - stack of 7 x shots... A couple more stacks of Orion and the Pleiades, the first is a stack of 4 the second close up is 5 images 12 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
