200mm f5 Newtonian, Canon EOS 350D
No DS filter, guided
25 subs 10s – 30s
Processed in Nebulosity and PS CS3

 

 

Reprocessed by stacking with frames taken from 20th January 2010 unfiltered. A total of 40 frames stacked. Far less noise and more detail. Had to crop much closer though because of rotation stacking issues.

An experiment to see how this would come out taken with an f/15 Mak-Cass. Certainly not what you’re meant to use for this type of object. It means you can still actually see the trapezium.

This website is a place where I can post my images purely for the fun of it. Many are first attempts as I’m still learning digital imaging. You can find more information about the equipment I use on the About/Equipment page.

To give me something to aim for, I have set up pages to get as many Messier and Lunar 100 objects as I can. The Deep Sky page is for objects not in Messier’s catalogue.

Please come back and visit as the site develops, I make lots of mistakes, the weather gets worse and the skies get brighter.
