A collection of deep Sky images from 2019

M20 Triffid Nebula

This image was taken through my previous scope which was a Meade series 5000 triplet refractor, on my Skywatcher EQ8 Mount, this was a great scope. Taken with my SXVR H18 mono camera, it was Autoguided with an Altair Astro 80mm maxiguider with a Lodestar V1 CCD guide camera.

It consists of 30 x 3min exposures through each LRGB filter, 10 x 3min darks, and 20 flats, stacked and processed in the superb Astropixelprocessor software, and just finished off in Photoshop. The star spikes were added with software for effect.

Caldwell 49 Rosette Nebula

Barnard 33 The horsehead Nebula

This image was taken through my previous scope which was a Meade series 5000 triplet refractor, on my Skywatcher EQ8 Mount, this was a great scope. Taken with a modded Canon 1000D DSLR, it was Autoguided with an Altair Astro 80mm maxiguider with a Lodestar V1 CCD guide camera.

It consists of 40 x 2min exposures, 10 x 2min darks, and 20 flats, stacked and processed in the superb Astropixelprocessor software, and just finished off in Photoshop. This is also heavily cropped, hence the grainy finish, not one of my better ones..
