Hi Jen,


Great pic

Very sharp and noise free. Subs/total exp?

Is your 1100D has a Peltier cooler? Full spectrum mod?

Hi Jen,
That has come out very nicely indeed, and your tracking is good. I eventually changed over from a canon 1100D to a CCD OSC , when one hot summer night, my darks came out as reds. As time goes on, you will find that you just keep getting better and better at it.

Cheers
Peter

Looking really good.

Nice colour and contrast. A few faint tiny friends visible in the background too.

Keep them coming!

Very cool. Those galaxies are just so faint when I catch one. Great to see one in full colour. Such a lot of dedicated time.

You've got yourself a nice galaxy shot there! It is actually quite nice seeing it embedded into a wider and larger starry background than usual; not taken with a longer focal length newtonian and cropped in

Nothing to criticise there. That's a very nice wide field M83 with good colour.

Cheers
