I took advantage of some nice seeing conditions in the last couple of days. I was playing with PHD2 tracking software and added some additional frames for improved S/N ratio to my previous set of NGC 1977 (Running Man) and NGC 1980. Both images were obtained with my 10" f/6.3 Meade at prime focus with an LPS-V3 filter and Canon 60Da.

M51 - M-51: always a challenging object for me. This is probably my best ever of that galaxy shot with the C-14 HD at f/7 and Canon 6D at ISO 6400. Stack of 6 x 5 minutes exposures.

M97 - Owl nebula, very pretty planetary in Ursa Major, shot with C-14 HD at f/7, same camera and filter. Stack of 6 x 5 min exposures under good seeing.

This is a multi image stack all taken with my TMB-130 apo refractor, the modified Canon 6D and an IDAS LPS-V4 filter. Images were stacked and calibrated in Registax and processed in Photoshop CS6. Cumulative exposure was about 15 minutes at ISO 3200-6400.

September 16 - 17, 2017

Tanks to the unusually long stretch of fine weather and fair seeing, I have had fun imaging from my observatory the past couple of months. This is M45 the Pleiades and is a multi stack totaling about 40 minutes of exposure with the AP-155 Starfire Apo refractor at f/5.2, all taken with a modified Canon 6D and IDAS LPS-V4 filter, shooting at ISO 1600-6400.
