M33
Lens: TPO os6in newt Camera: K5 Photo Location: my back yard ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F4 
Posted By: blues_hawk, 11-28-2021, 05:29 PM


Atmospheric effects and the need for a new flat frame aren't enough to keep m33 from being worthy of sharing for conversation. This is the linear fit average of 6 900 second long images taken using a 6 inch newtonian telescope on a motorized equatorial mount using autoguiding.

Or, for the AP guys:
Pentax K5 full spectrum modded
TPO os6in imaging newtonian reflector
EQ6R-pro mount
ZWO asi120/diy finder/autoguider
Indilib/ekos server networked to in house pc
Stacked with Siril, finished with Rawtherapee

I'm not an AP guy, but my brother was. I was impressed by his work and I am impressed by your work. I am a little familiar with the gear needed to perform this photography, but I don't have the skill, gear and dedication to do it. Thanks for providing this image for viewing.

Very nice 👍

I'm guessing you may have a go at comet Leonard?

I wouldn't mind some of those clear skies in the UK...

Yes! I hadn't heard about it yet so thanks for the heads up. I plan to set up tonight and go to bed early then hopefully get a shot at it around 4am as it gets high enough and the sky becomes more stable.
