My best Galactic photo yet...
Since the major upgrade to the 6" f/5 Schmidt-Newt OTA on the Celeston CGE with the right LPS-P2-FF filter, I've had lots of variables to work with, including my post-processing routine.
Now I can drive up to and past 10min subs with guiding on the 4" piggybacked skywatcher. It's pretty cool to work with, but the weather has kept me from practicing very often.
May 19th, I got a try at M101, the CN challenge of the month.
Mine is far from the best, but it's a personal best for me.
I followed my v1 routine which will end up as a blog here soon enough.
