Hi folks,

 

And old image , from the time i was not good at AP at all.  From last year.

 

M53 not too many subs and can't even remember if i put flats and bias frames.

 

The best part is NGC 5053, always had trouble with this one visual , even in my 18" Obsession, could hardly notice it.

image shows it rather well...even some color in the stars.

lol.gifbow.gif  That's 10 times better than anything I've ever been able to do.  I love this image.  There's something really cool about capturing multiple things in the same frame.  Messier 46 and 47 are neat.

 

Very inspiring!  Thanks for sharing!

Thanks,

 

I see i had about 60 subs, probably 1 minute subs.

 

But i see now this is taken through a 76 mm  with FF at F/4.5 cause the stars in the corners looks still stars...i had no FF on my 102 mm at that time...
