This is my second try with my first data and PixInsight software. A little better but I still have so much to learn

Just finished my first ever image! Bicolor narrowband of the Eastern Veil Nebula. Only 1.8 hours though:(

Lots of work needed, but super excited!

iPhone 7 held up to the eyepiece of my TeleVue Genesis SDF.  I know its over exposed on one side but not bad for a handheld shot with a phone.

After a little bit a dabbling with my phone and telescope, this is my first real image taken. Of the Lunar Eclipse back in January. Taken in Ontario with a Pixel 2XL and an Orbiter 4000. There wasn't any processing done to this image, I do have another image that I played around with in Lightroom, but I prefer the all natural image

I've messed around over the years with the intentions of getting into AP and never really followed through. 

 

I would call this my first real astrophoto where I put some effort into it and finally got all the equipment in sync and followed along somewhat with Jerry Lodriguss' beginners astro processing guide. 

 

Skywatcher EQ6R-Pro

Astro-Tech AT115EDT w/ 0.8x reducer/flattener

Evoguide 50ED w/ ASI290mm mini

ASI071MC-Pro w/ Optolong L-Pro

ZWO EAF - autofocused w/ Astrophotography Tools routine

 

21x300sec lights w/ darks,flats, bias frames

2 Hours of partially clear skies on my new Nexstar 6SE.  Probably won't get another clear night for a few weeks. So until then it's the moon smile.gif
