Astromay

Galaktyka M51 zwana również Wir oddalona jest od nas o około 25mln lat świetlnych. Towarzyszy jej nieregularna towarzyszka NGC5195. Canon 20D + GSO 150/750, 10x300s.

There were a few starry nights in the May, so I had a chance to test my complete astrohpotography setup including guiding. The common truth is – we want much and fast, so I had several targets, each one exposed ten times for five minutes each frame. And it quickly turned out that is not much for Canon 20D and it requires more time for each object. Anyway, first lessons learned, now its time to get coma corrector and do some flats.

Achromatic 70/500 guider works well, and there is no significant bending so far. PHD software is ultra easy and also do its job. Setting all up takes pretty much time unfortunately, however I am able to do it wihin half an hour (including GoTo calibration).

Mgławica planetarna M97 (Sowa) powstała około 6000 lat temu i jest oddalona od nas o około 2600 lat świetlnych. Na zdjęciu w dolnym prawym rogu towarzyszy jej galaktyka M108 oddalona o około 45mln lat świetlnych. Canon 20D + GSO 150/750, 10x300s.
