NGC5128

Posted By louie atalasidis

Hi all

This is my first time posting here,I started imaging about a year and half ago and still have lots to learn. This is a shot of NGC5128 I took the other night,exposure was 60seconds x 29.
I used a C11 at f/3.3 and a SXV-H9C unguided on a G11. I've had some help with processing recently from Warren Keller so thanks Warren much appreciated .

Cheers

NGC4945

Posted By louie atalasidis

Hi all

This is a shot of a Centurian Galaxy NGC4945 which I took a couple of nights ago.
Exposure time was 60sec x 60 and was shot through my C11 @ f/3.3 using my SXV-H9C.
Conditions were not the best again but thats life.

All comments are welcome.

Cheers

M83

Posted By louie atalasidis

Hi again

This is my M83 I shot the other night, at 60sec x 60 exposures using my SXV-H9C through my C11 @ f/3.3. I had a lot of help from Warren Keller on the use of PS for processing to put me on the right track . Conditions were very average and at mag 4 skies you get all soughts of problems. Anyway for those that havent check out Warren Kellers
tutorials on his site yet (and there's more in-depth one coming soon) do so there a lot of fun.


Cheers

The Bug

Posted By louie atalasidis

Hi again all

This is a shot of the Bug Nebula in Scopius (NGC6302) again shot through my C11 @ f/3.3 using the SXV-H9C on a G11 mount. The exposure times were 45sec x 18 and capture and stacking done in AA3 and processing in PS7. This thing is recorded as being 13mag planetary nebula at a size of 1.5'by o.5'.
An interesting visual and photographic object ,I'm sure most of you know this fellow.

Cheers

NGC5189/The spiral nebula

Posted By louie atalasidis

Hi again all

Another one I took last night in the moonlightNGC5189, It's a bit rough this one. I didn't check the focus so Its a bit soft and some star bloating but hey It was fun I spent most of the night trying to get my auto-guiding worked out...and just when
I get a very good 2 minutes ...the next exposure would be crap! well after about 5 hours of working on It I thought I'd give the work a rest and have some fun.
Exposure times were 30sec x 100 and shot through a C11 @ f/6.3 using a SXV-H9C.

Cheers

Hi Guy's,shot these last night through a C11 @ f/6.3 and a SXV-H9C and a IR filter used.
I'm still having trouble trying to guide well shooting through the C11 but hay that's life.
All coments and advice welcome.
