Here's an image of Messier 45 from Oct 6th/2013.
very nice ^...equipment?
Nice! A little more exposure time should really bring out that dust.
Thank you...yes I forgot that. Astro-tech 6" newt, Canon 550d, tracked on a HEQ-5, used backyardEOS on laptop for cam control, 100 secs, ISO 1600, single raw image, processed in paint shop pro.
Oh wow. Yeah, you've only got about a minute and a half of exposure time. Get a good hour or so and you'll be amazed at the difference.
I have an SSAG auto-guider cam I bought used. I'm just waiting to buy the right smaller guide scope for it.
Then I can go to town :)
You don't need to autoguide, though it makes things easier. You can take multiple short exposures and stack them together.
Yes I understand that , but I have had trouble with dss , I actually shot five of these at 50 or 60 seconds. Then a coupleat a 100 secs.I may buy aip4win this winter
