My Deep Sky Astrophotography

CCD vs Film? Lots of time vs no patience? Alright, this is your place to discuss all the astrophotography what's and what's not. You can discuss about techniques, accessories, cameras, whatever....just make sure you also post some nice photos here too!

After I shot M42, I decided to try Flame Nebula and Horsehead Nebula. Unfortunately, I didn’t turn on the dew heater of the camera and resulted at least two dew marks on the glass panel in front of the sensor of the camera. I only realised this mistake during the next shooting session in Feb 2022. After I cleaned it, it was back to normal.

Weather was no good for the month of Feb 2022. I managed to try about 8 DSOs. They are faint and small. Just for practice.

I shot Rosette Nebula in Jan 2022 as well. However, due to I didn’t centre the target probably, some part of this nebula was out of the frame. Some stars were elongated as well.
(Have to redo in future)

I reprocessed the M83 that was shot in Jan 2022 (applied lens correction in LR but was able to correct the oval shape stars)

From early March to mid-May is Galaxy Season for Northern hemisphere. During this period, the night sky offers up a buffet of incredible galaxies to observe and photograph.
