Nice results Devon.
Colours are captured well.

Try lifting the camera or capture software Brightness/Contrast a tad to lighten the background sky a bit.
It should make it a more pleasing image.

Captured from my NSN broadcast tonight. Taken with a C 14 @ F4 using a Mallincam Extreme, IDAS LPS filter, and a stack of two 90 second integrations using Miloslick software.

Looks good Dwight. I like the colours


Good Contrast too. Nothing is burnt out or washed out.

Thanks Andy and Ken. Out in "pitch black" skies in the mountains of BC hoping to capture some wider fields with a C6 @ f3. That image was taken with our club equipment just outside the city limits. I wish I had better internet here besides my phone!

Very nice Mikael - thanks for demoing the new cam + DSS on your Celestron SCT - it gives a very wide fov presumably via a FR ~f/3.7 and 750mm efl ? As M57 is very bright try also imaging @ f/10 via DSS for a larger image scale like mine above

Thanks! Yes it is about 3.5 but because of coma problems I think a focal to about F5 is more appropriate for my telescope (Celestron 11" F10).

5x5?

Is this image made from 5 stacked images of 5 seconds each?
If so, it belongs in the Imaging Forum galleries, not this one.

Yes, it was made from 5 images but in live at the telescope. I am using DeepSkyStackerLive. If you dislike live stacking I can show you a singel image, no problem. The difference between one and several images are not so significant. Non post processing was made after the observaton. I do not think my picture belongs to the other forum, do you?
