Guys, the pictures with your telescopes are amazing! I want to buy a telescope, but for the momenta i prefer to take a new camera. But I want to ask, when you use telescope do you stack images after after that or there is no need.
Because when i try to stack images with deepskystacker the result astro picture is worst than my best original astro picture
It sounds strange, may be i need more practice with the software, but i want to know how do you made it.
Thanks!

Stacking images

I use Astroart 5 to stack and enhance my images. Many people use deepskystacker with good results. I ahve not used it so I cannot comment on how best to use it. There are probably some settings that need to be adjusted.

The largest galaxies, Messier 31, 33, and M101 are reachable at 200-300 mm. The planets are out and require much longer focal length. You might get some good Moon images. Try for the large summer targets such as the Scutum Star Cloud, Messier 24, and as above the Messier 8 region. The Great Sagittarius Star Cloud is huge and would be too big in a 200-300 mm lens. Better to go with 50-100 for that object. It is very bright and requires just brief exposures (as all the bright star clouds) for highly detailed images.

Anywhere along the Great Rift there is much to capture.

An easy target because of its proximity to Altair and Tarazed is Barnard 142 / 143.

Here is my result with the K-01 and 200mm @ f/5.6 ISO 800 and 376 Seconds.

I will repeat - great pictures!
I keep eyes on k-5iis and information about k-50. If i save money soon I think to buy one of them. I am sure they are very good cameras for astro pictures. And if i take one of them i will take the o-gps.
In the internet there are some pictures from k-5 and the gps with exposure 50-60 sec, and they are very beautiful.
But let me share some of my astro pictures. They are not stacked (the original single shots) and not very nice but i like them

The sky to the east from my garden:


The Moon Eye, az i call this picture:


Of course The MIlkyWay:


The Pleiades:


I have some other pictures but they were made with other cameras
