I don’t normally use my terrestrial camera for deep sky imaging, but I was on vacation without a telescope so had to “make do” a bit.  Since the comet was prominent in late July the camera and lens were a good choice to bring with me in any event.

 

Here is the Antares/Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex as seen from Lake Tahoe, California. This is 48 one minute exposures captures with a Leica SL2 and 90-280mm zoom at 280mm and f/4. LENR was enabled, so no dark frames. No bias or flat frames, either. PixInsight for image combination and gradient removal. Global contrast enhancement in Photoshop, then processed to taste in Lightroom.

Good for you for using the lenr feature. Do you use it often?
