Very nice.

You seem to be getting the hang of things.

I've considered buying this camera, any chance of trying a few DSO's and posting your results?

Very nice.
I hope mine come out 1/2 as good, when I decide to brave the elements (or just wait 'til it gets warmer).

Very good for first light. However, you should post process the 2nd image a bit more, as the bright limb is overexposed. Reduce the brightness and increase the contrast and fiddle with the histogram functions as well.

Most of my early images sufferred this problem. I was really pleased when I took a nice image of the Moon using binoculars which looked as good as many I've done with my 127mm Maksutov.

My Moon photos are here:


Only 435 of them. Perhaps if I have time one day, I'll reprocess some of the older ones.
