I took out the TeleVue Genesis (non-sdf) tonight because the weather was looking clear...but man, it's COLD out there! In order to make it easy, I chose one large and one small target in the constellation Andromeda.
So, I went with the Andromeda Galaxy and NGC 891 (which was almost a pin point in that field of stars...very small in a f/5 scope).
The setup was:
Scope: TeleVue Genesis f/5
Mount: Celestron CGEM
Camera: Sony A7S
Subs: Andromeda Galaxy, twenty-nine 30 second subs at ISO 5000; NGC 891, twenty 30 second subs at ISO 6400
Processed with Deep Sky Stacker and Adobe Lightroom
NGC 891 was heavily, and I mean heavily cropped just so you could see it. As a result the stars look pretty bloated. The Andromeda Galaxy was also cropped quite a bit, but not nearly as drastic as NGC 891. It was also downsize and converted to jpg for posting.
These should look better (I hope) when you open them versus the compressed preview images.
As always, I appreciate you looking!
