Big Spider

I have never imaged this object as it is behind my roof and above the street lights and trees. Not to mention the sky glow from the city.

I managed to find a spot and a night carrying the mount and trusty refractor\ DSLR down the yard .

A lot to see down south. Just an hour on the DSLR in 3min exposures with some darks and flats. DSS and PS. F5.9

Thanks Peter,

Now I know I can see the Tarantula I tried Ha in mono. Unfortunately ended up with several hours of bad shots. . I think I will have to give up on Nebulosity controlling PHD2, and go back to ECOS or Sharpcap .
