Shot this Friday night.  1 hour exposure at ISO 3200.  Moon at 38%.  Didn't think it would turn out this good.  Of course I'm kinda partial toward my own shots!  :D

Once again, nice work, Steve!

 

The Triangulum Galaxy is one that has completely eluded me from my back yard, with any scope!  Now I can study it through your efforts! :)

Thanks guys.  This is with a Meade 8" LX90 on the Meade wedge.  I used a Canon Rebel T5 DSLR camera and the Meade 6.3 focal reducer shooting at prime focus. It's 40 90 second shots stacked.  I finally learned how to fix the star bloat in Photoshop. Still got a lot to learn but I'm having a blast!

Steve,

 

I am doing the learning thing now with the LPI-G Color (Duh...do I push this button to make it go??!!).  Then, I have a DSI Pro II with a piezo electric cooling back on it, jumping up and down in the wings.  I am hoping I can use the new software with that one also, but I am not expecting it to work out that easy.

 

Bill
