This is what I came up with at 16 hours with the Meade 70mm Astrograph and ASI533MC Pro mounted on my EQ6R Pro. Been shooting a lot of dark nebula from home. Not the best skies as far as darkness, but it’s turned out so far.

I am finding that dark nebula are all I ever want to go after. There are so many targets and Cepheus alone sure has a tour to be had.

Cepheus is a wonderful region with all the swirling dust patterns. Coming up on deck are the Perseus and Taurus molecular clouds. This is a great time of year to be shooting dust!

Hoping to get out tonight after moon sets. I have a few more images to post. I went after the dark shark which was hard and shot LDN 1147. This stuff is a challenge for sure but I like it.

Welcome to the Dark Side. lol.gif

Lately all I've been doing is avoiding my narrowband filters. There is just something about doing images in uv/ir cut only ,I am more satisfied with those regardless what the target is. 

I'm thinking about shooting some DSOs that I only attempted with narrowband filter, but both using a cooled cmos with uv/ir cut and also with a stock DSLR. 

On a fast Newtonian (F4). 

I haven't tried it yet in a serious way, only short integrations.

Love the detail in the dust! Do you have a rough SQM for the area you shot from?

My SQM rating in my backyard is around 20.20 as measured by my SQM meter. Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I am back at it again tonight.
