NGC 891


Recommended Posts

For me, one of the great things about this hobby is looking on this website (and a few others, inc. NASA) and seeing the beautiful images, and then trying to capture a few photons and making your own image. In the end as long as I'm seeing some improvement there is a huge 'buzz' just in seeing a bit of a smudge on APT etc.

A two-hour clear spell!!! Just over one hour in 200 second exposures at 800ISO with ED80 DSPRO and modded Canon 450D on HEQ5. Bortle 4, next to a streetlight. There are even quite a few other galaxies amongst the mis-edited stars!

For better or worse this is my smudge and I like it... but will hopefully improve further in the future should the clouds part again.
