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!

Nice M8-M20 shot.

These bright objects are easy to capture but the surrounding dense star fields make it difficult to render nice imagery. Yours is much better than my work.

The M31 shot shows a lot of nice detail. But there are some phantom/glare lights near the corners. Did some lights shine into your tube?

Thx. Could be. I was capturing at about 15 degrees.

I will go there again.

M16,The Eagle Nebula is a young open cluster of stars in the constellation Serpens.
鹰状星云是一个位于巨蛇座的星云,也是银河系的一个恒星诞生区,也是一个电离氢区。因其形状好像一只展翅翱翔的雄鹰而得此名。
