    Awesome work zesly, are there any technical details you can give us?

  • 20 exposures of 1 minute. Canon EOS 350D on a 150/750 newtonian telescope. Offset et dark processing. I forgotten to take flat-field. Logarithm to attenuate the difference between the very brilliant areas and lower areas, saturation under photoshop.
    Thank you ! glad you like it.

    Thanks zesly, your lack of a flat field hasn’t caused any issues. Is this a crop? Very well done.

  • I cropped only to avoid optical fault (coma) at the borders of the image. It is almost the full field of the camera.

    beautiful pic,Did you zoom in on your lens to get the upclose shoot.

  • The DSLR is mounted directly on the telescope without any lens. I can’t zoom in. Focal length 750mm, aperture F/5.
    Thank you !
