I set out to image the california nebula but early on as It was low on the horizon I decided to get a few shots of the crescent nebula and region.
Very pleased for such a short integration but Id like to add the OIII and SII channels at some point.
Been waiting since I took up this hobby to image this. The Orion Nebula. Not taken from the garden this time, but the drive! Sat in the cold for over 4 hours waiting for Orion to be in the right position. It was worth the wait.

For those of you like me that are new to this, you might find the link below useful.
This has helped me understand the best combination of scope and camera to frame targets and understand what might be cropped out.
I’ve been working on the Pacman nebula over the past few days but I thought I’d make a start on the California the other night. I’m Just amazed the difference this mono camera is having for my narrowband images.
Look forward to adding some more subs and potentially OII and SII

Well, new to me any way. 2nd hand off AB&S – bought specifically for planets.
“First Light” (for me) was on Tuesday night – Mars big – limited detail as very windy but held planet in field of view quite a few minutes – some surface detail but hoping for more on still nights.
Also tried it on Double Cluster and Pleaides – OK but without the zazz of my 10″ Dobsonian! (as you’d expect 10″ just brings in the light and gives that wonderful diamonds on velvet effect I love so much!)
…..But clearly has resolution.
I’ve decided to start processing some of my images again as i have a poor tendency to dwell on things for a while testing and testing. So here is the first one in hubble palette.
20x5min HA 36x5min Oiii 7x5min Sii
Hope you like it 🙂
M33 – galaxy Less than two hours of data. I will revisit if i get a clear night!
Whole Veil nebula taken with my ZS61 and non modified Nikon. 2 hours 40 mins of 5 min exposures. I may add to this over time. Looking at imaging the Sadr region next.
I had previously imaged the Heart Nebula at the start of my Astrophotography journey back in May. At the time I was delighted with the image. However, 5 months on, new scope and new editing skills I thought its time to revisit this beautiful target. I have attached my previous image and the new one, that now also includes the Fish Head nebula.
