Success at last! M33 RGB after a year of endless problems!


Recommended Posts


Now that I've added a little baffle to my focuser, and a big dew shield on the front of my scope, my flats are calibrating a lot cleaner than before and my backgrounds have much less "mottling". This is the first RGB image I've done to completion since buying this new scope that has come out to my standards! But I think it has come out very nicely indeed!

6hrs total

20x300s R, G, and B

It also shows how far my astrophotography has come, as this was my result last time I tried M33 on my old scope and unmodded DSLR:


No comparison!


I also made a quick n dirty north america RGB while I was testing the new telescope modification, so here's that while I'm here:


Now things sure aren't perfect yet, I think my flats still *slightly* over-correct. But I think to improve things even further I need to take the primry mirror cell off and fully flock the inside of the tube, which is a lot more work!


For now at least, I am happy : )
