Telescope: Meade LX6 10” @ f/6.3
Camera: Canon Rebel T2i
Filter: Orion Imaging Skyglow Filter
Exposure: 2x(16x1/500sec), ISO 800 saved as RAW
Software: Backyard EOS, Digital Photo Professional, Nebulosity 2, Panorama Maker 3, Registax 6, Photoshop CS5

This is a test image taken with my 10” Meade LX6 installed on its shiny new Super Wedge and Giant Field Tripod. Having the scope on a wedge with its drive running made taking mosaics sooooo much easier! This is a 2-panel mosaic with 16x1/500 sec images stacked for each panel. The seeing was not very good and it will be interesting to see how well this scope performs under better conditions.

Why do I always get the impulse to copy your images into my computer?
