This is my first astrophoto ever. Its is a composite of 5 90 second exposures through my 5" apo. Is cold here in Denver so I set up the scope on my balcony. I cant see north from my balcony so I just pointed the mount in general north. I did use the SSAG.
Does this look like a 7.5 minute exposure to you guys? I guess Im a little disappointed. Granted the light pollution is bad, but I was expecting more light/detail with 7 minutes.
Im considering returning it and getting a Celestron Edge 1100HD on the CGEM DX with a hyperstar.
I used Deep Sky Stacker and Adobe CS5.
Any advice is appreciated!
