A couple more from the Samyang 135mm

Recommended Posts

A couple more images with the Samyang 135mm, Atik 460 combo. I'm really enjoying this little setup. Its made astrophotography fun again! The first image was stopped down to try and control the coma. The second image i did wide open. I was affraid the signal would be so weak, so i sacrificed the stars in hope of picking more of the nebula up. Ive lost count on how many time I've processed the image. I'm still not entirely happy with it. I aim to grab some RGB over christmas holidays if the cloud gods allow. Constructive criticism welcome! Thanks for looking.

I tried the Spaghetti Friday night but with the footie floodlights and a neighbours insecurity light made it hard.

900sec subs at f/2 were a struggle and to hard to process, so gave up trying, it's in there but not good. :hmh:

Yours looks reasonable, more than I got, will try longer subs next time.

Even with the 20 min subs hardly anything was showing up on the screen! It was disheartening to say the least. I've got a few more hours to add to this. I'm hoping with more data, it'll be easier to process.

Both great images! The stars don't actually look so bad in the second, and you've got a lot of signal of what is a faint object. First one has cracking contrast and depth.
