Messier 20
Contest Number: 168 Contest Theme: Night Sky Lens: APO telescope Camera: K5 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: VoiceOfReason, 08-02-2020, 06:42 AM

I took this from my yard on July 12th. 20x 180s ISO 1600 exposures for a total of 1 hour of time with 20 darks, 20 flats, and 50 bias frames stacked in Astro Pixel Processor and finished up in Photoshop 2020. My K5 has been astro modded and is pretty much only used for astrophotography now, and it makes me want to have my K3 astro modded and just use my K1ii for normal photos when I need to.

Pentax makes excellent cameras for astrophotography, which is why I still use them over dedicated astro cameras most of the time.
