Hi all,
 
I had a chance to join my dad at his observatory.  He wanted my help to set up PHD as he has been taking pictures and manually guiding for a lot of years, which it is very time consuming.  Also, he wanted me to connect my 40D and take some pictures while I was setting PHD up.
 
My dad has a Celestron C8 with an Atlas mount.  I took the following picture of NGC 7000 and I processed the subs with DSS (Darks + Bias), Photoshop, Photoshop Astronomy tools and Pixinsight.
 
Details for NGC7000

- Number of subs: 10
- Exposure: 4.5 min each (45 min.)
- ISO: 800
- Location: Ager, Lleida, Spain
- Canon 40D + Nikkor 300mm piggybacked on C8
- Approx. Temperature of the 40D chip: 70F
 
Details for M31:

- Number of subs: 8
- Exposure: 4 min each (32 min.)
- ISO: 800
- Location: Ager, Lleida, Spain
- Canon 40D + Nikkor 300mm piggybacked on C8
- Approx. Temperature of the 40D chip: 70F

Details for M42 and Horsehead:

- Number of subs: 10
- Exposure: 3 min each (30 min.)
- ISO: 800
- Location: Ager, Lleida, Spain
- Canon 40D + Nikkor 300mm piggybacked on C8
- Approx. Temperature of the 40D chip: 70F
 
I spent 3 nights taking pictures, but I have not finished processing the other pictures, so...
 
More to come! :)
 
M.

Hola Miquel,

Aquest cap de setmana t'he substituit jo a Ager amb el teu pare. És una magnífica persona. Ha tingut molta paciència amb mi i m'ha fet molts comentaris de la teva recent estada a Catalunya. Com jo també tinc una 40D hem aprofitat la teva experiència amb aquesta càmera. Quan tingui processades les fotografie ja les penjarè al foro, però ja tinc clar que no seran, ni de lluny, tant bones com aquestes teves. Però jo estic començant.

Una abraçada.

Jaume

Gracies David! Si els cels molt bons a Ager, pero encara tinc que apendre molt sobre el tema de processar imatges.

Quina gran astrofotografia Miquel!!!

Poder deixar el sensor de la Canon 40D rebent fotons durant 4 minuts a Iso 800...quin luxe!

Felicitats des de Barcelona.

Que bo, es pot pujar i baixar la luminositat a plaer de aquesta imatge tan atractiva com es la galaxia de Andromeda, aixi podrem pagar una mica meins en el rebut de la llum reduin el consum de Kw. Moltes gracies per la consideració que te voste amb els que miran la seva web.
