Rosette Nebula - unmodded 1000D new
      #5561105 - 12/08/12 03:50 PM Attachment (57 downloads)

I took this just to see what I could pull in red from my unmodded Canon 1000D. Didn't really even plan on shooting it that night, and only got 21 minutes before the large trees on my south side got in the way. I'm really impressed with how much I got in such little time. I was thinking of modding my camera, but now I think I'll hold off awhile. I think I'm getting a little better at PixInsight, too.

Orion ED80T
Sirius mount, unguided
Canon 1000D
Orion SkyGlow filter
7 x 180-second lights
20 flats
10 darks
10 bias
PixInsight
white zone, in the middle of 3 million people

Thanks for looking, and feedback is appreciated!

Mod it man! You won't be sorry. I self modded mine in about 45 minutes. Nice job on a faint target, especially for only 21 minutes.

step by step directions by Gary H. I sent a donation for the excellent directions

Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, I definitely am leaning towards modding it. I keep thinking I'm going to use it for everyday photography and I'll need to get a another filter for it, but I only ever use it for astrophotography. I'm always using another camera for everyday, usually on my phone.
