    Default M13, m45, m51



    Went out the other night and took some more pics

    Unfortunately I forgot all but one of my CF cards The only one I had was a very small 2gb with pictures on it I couldn't delete! So I had to resort to taking jpg images which has added a lot more noise than normal. I will definitely be retaking these soon come the next new moon.

    All shots ISO 3200

    M13: Single image, 30 seconds.
    M45: 18 minutes, dark calibration.
    M51: 35 minutes, dark calibration.





    Mount: Celestron CG5-GT
    Telescope: Stellarvue SV80ED-1
    Camera: Nikon D700 (unmodified)

    Great stuff with the CG5-GT and the Nikon D700!

    Are these guided or unguided? How did you process them?

    Nice images Staulkor! If you try a little bit less aggressive processing the M45 will become a gem.
