M45 with Canon 10D/FSQ-106

Posted By Mark Hanson

It consisted of 10-3.5min exposures at ISO1600 taken in Raw mode from 10/06/03 and 20-5min ISO800 exposures taken on 12/25/03 and converted, calibrated, aligned and stacked in IP. Digital Development was used to stretch the image. Some other adjustments were done in PS6. Total of 2 hours and 25min exposure time.

M81 & 82 With Canon 10D

Posted By Mark Hanson

This is an image I took while at New Mexico Skies.

It’s of M81 & 82 using a Takahashi FCT-150 at F7. It was 21-4min exposures at ISO 1600. Calibrated, stacked and processed in Images Plus and Photoshop. 50% size. The seeing was quite good.

Of course any night imaging in New Mexico is a good one!

Thanks,

Mark

Orion Wide Field

Posted By Mark Hanson

Here is an image I took while in New Mexico. It’s a mosaic of the Orion region using a Canon 10D, 50mm and 135mm lenses. It’s more than 3 hours of exposure. I had to shrink it to 1/3 the original size to make it a reasonable viewing size.

Thanks,

Another Image from New Mexico

Posted By Mark Hanson

Here is an image of M78, this proved to be more difficult than I anticipated (Very Dim).

This was 20-5min exposures using a Tak-FCT 150 at F7, Canon 10D at ISO 1600. All images were dark frame subtracted and aligned, stacked and processed using Images Plus.

The seeing was quite good.

Thanks,

Veil Nebula with Digital Camera's

Posted By Mark Hanson

Here is an image I took last week at New Mexico Skies using a Tak FCT-150 at F5. I used 2 Canon digital cameras, a Modified Canon 300D with IR filter removed and a Canon 10D.
It was 18-5min images with the 300D and 6-5min images with the canon 10D all were calibrated, aligned and stacked in Images Plus and processed in Photoshop CS.

The 300D is very sensitive in the HA and the 10D in the blue/green and together produce quite nice results.

NGC 7023 300D/10D

Posted By Mark Hanson

It consisted of 10-5min exposures using the 300D(modified) at ISO 800 and 7-5min exposures with the 10D at ISO1600. All where taken in RAW mode then using IP to convert, calibrate, align, excluded addition and stretched in DD. Final processing in Photoshop.

The conditions were less than average so I would like to try this one again when the conditions are more favorable. I think 10-minute exposures using the 10D at I SO 800 will produce a great image
