Here's the Horsehead Nebula I shot Monday night with the 8" LX90 scope.  The RA tracking went bad on it so I deforked it and mounted the scope on a SkyWatcher EQ6-R Pro.  This is 25 shots at 6 minutes each with an unmodified CanonT5 DSLR.  I used my spike tool to get the diffraction spikes in the stars.

Steve,

 

Beautiful image!  That spike tool you mentioned sounds like something useful to have.  Makes this look a lot like what comes out of the Hubble.  I studied it long enough that I started looking around for double stars, just like I do when scanning with a wide field telescope! :)

 

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Bill. Been at it for 4 1/2 years now and still having a blast!  Just wish these dang clouds would go away!  :)

I certainly understand the cloud, wind, rain, situation.  Just about the time the mud bog I have for a back yard starts to dry out, another batch of something comes along.  We are supposed to get cold rain tomorrow and snow the next day! :angry:
