Ngc 6168 & ngc 6164

Not the greatest of images, but considering the limited exposure time and were taken under a Full moon I thought these turned out pretty nice for now.

NGC 6168 (Fighting Dragons in Ara) and NGC 6164 -

18x 180sec @ ISO 200 - Modded Canon 550D (No darks or flats applied)

I know I pushed the processing on this one. Was very low ISO to try and get longer subs due to the full moon. But looks promising as a target under a dark sky.

I also took some shots of the Running Chicken and Eta Carinae while trouble shooting some issues with my mount. These are around 30min of subs @ 60sec - 800 ISO.

Was the usual setup of Skywatcher Evostar 72ED on HEQ5Pro. (I really enjoy using this little scope. Especially for a beginner starting
the hobby).

Comments/ Criticism welcome.

Nothing wrong with those. A great result under moonlit skies, they are all very impressive shots for shooting under such bright conditions.
