A test run with the C14 and the Starizona reducer @ F7,5 FL=2800mm on the famous Owl nebula. Next to the nebula one little dot is a quasar at a distance of 8 billion light years. Incredible.
Hickson 44 or the Leo Quartet
A small group of 4 galaxies in Leo, with peculiar shapes. Test picture with the C11, Essatto and ASI2600mc. I still got mirror drift so egg shaped stars unfortunately. But it gives an impression of possibilities.
M109, C11 @ F7.2 & Nikon D750
M109 is located very very close to Phecda, one of the stars in Ursa Major’s bowl. In fact the star caused reflections in this image. About 4 hours of data, 115x 120″ on ISO800. Guiding was done through OAG. Manual focus corrections.
The images were obtained using Sequence Generator Pro, and saved in TIF. This creates B/W images. To get your color back they need to be debayered. This can be done in AstroPixelProcessor by checking “Force CFA” in the menu 0/RAW/FITS
