My Deep Sky Astrophotography

Post by leslie128 »

I commenced DS Astrophotography on 21 Jan 2022 and my 1st DSO was M42, Orion Nebula. Due to travel to Malaysia by land was still not open, I can only shoot DSOs in Singapore.

I realised in Feb 2022. Should be due to slightly out of focus and resulted in elongated stars.
Hopefully I can redo in near future.
