Last image before I headed to a dark site for wide-field astrophotos
M20 Trifid Nebula
Canon 60D + 600mm F/7.5 Achro
Took the iEXOS100 with me to an island nearby, (Bortle Class 4 was as dark as it could get around this area)
First is a widefield shot on a William Optics Z73 with a Canon 60D
90s subs as the weight was reaching the mount's max recommended payload for AP.
Next up is a widefield shot (55mm) on a Tamron lens @ F3.2
Clearly a mistake for leaving the aperture wide open as I lacked sufficient knowledge on Comas at that point of time!
Thanks for viewing and I hope that such ameteur photos can inspire many of you who are looking to enter/dabble in astrophotgraphy.
When I first started out, I was lost and clueless as to where I should start/which equipment best suited my needs and expecations.
Needless to say, I'm glad that through trail and error (and extensive searching on forums such as CN), I'm slowly improving and trying to spread the word of positivity for 'AP on a budget'. Previously, I was hesistant to show my AP when I saw a handful of decent images done by beginners and amateurs getting roasted and bashed by some users online. (Not here but rampant elswhere) Such stigma surrounding budget mounts/AP should be eradiated!
Thanks for viewing and share the love!
