AP Images Taken with Original NexStar

I have done a few mosaics and find the outcome pretty good!

The image is a stack of 97 ,14 second exposures processed by Deepsky Stacker and then Pixinsight software.
I am very happy with the original Nexstar as it performs well in the cold(when those clear cold arctic air masses settle in.

Thats a wonderful image of M1.
Just shows what can be done with the stock SE range of scopes.
Thanks for posting

I have seen a few pictures recently on this forum that look amazingly similar to single frame shots I have done a couple of years ago. I hope that a few people will realize how close they are to making images that are visually stunning with just a few more steps. The hard part is getting these seemingly bleak pictures collected. Just a few more minutes with the free astro software will reveal a plethora of hidden details from a series of images:

Looking forward to pushing the limits of the Alt-Az! My wallet and sanity thank you in advance.

I surprise myself sometimes with what kind of detail is available with as stack of 20 or 30 second exposures stacked and processed can produce.

Curious to know how you tease the details in the 2nd image out of the first. Lots of processing obviously, but what have you done. Have you kept any details?

The presence of the CLS doesn't appear though to have had any marked effect on thr excellently detailed quality of the image !
Great stitching too !

While the above one was from a DSLR, this image was taken with Neximage by shooting short clips of 20 secs each consisting of some 333 frames and overall shot around 15 clips. Then stacked each clip with Registax 6 and then combined them all for a stitched image thus so. To obtain the full picture of the half moon ( which I didn't ), I had to shoot maybe another 20 odd clips. But I like this result too.

Just to make sure: this is a two year old work. Some features have changed, especially with software. For example FITS liberator is no longer a plugin for photoshop. It is now a standalone tool, which is an excellent news since I no longer need to upgrade my photoshop copy.
