The Bode and Cigar are a galactic duo fairly high in the north sky these evenings. Wish I could stay up all night sometimes but I do like my sleep too! My setup is not automated to the point of trusting things to run themselves, so I still have to call it and shut down at some point. At least I can monitor things from the couch with one eye open while imaging.
Fireworks Galaxy taken 10/24. Still warm nights which is good for me but not so much for the camera performance. Tracking was decent and no wind to mess with me thank goodness. This one was a dozen five minute exposures but this is a dim target. Definitely will come back to this one.
NGC 891 is a galaxy seen from earth almost perfectly edge on. Very interesting target!. This is my image from last night with 9 frames at 5 minutes each. Now that it is getting dark earlier I don’t even have to stay up past midnight!
After months of summer smoke, I finally got out to do a little astrophotography last night. About an hour of stacked exposure on the Triangulum Galaxy. Several tries at image processing as I am still learning even the basic photoshop work. Fun stuff for my level!
