    Default Triangulum Galaxy and Andromeda Galaxy From Last Night



    I just got a new lens for my camera, nothing fancy, just the basic 75-300mm. I got a chance to use it last night and am pretty happy with the results. M33 is 78 x 45 seconds @ ISO 1600. M31 is 60 x 45 seconds at ISO 1600. Stacking was done in DSS, and post-processing was done in Photoshop CS5. Both were taken with a Canon t2i piggybacked on my ETX 125 AT.

    I have a sigma APO 70-300(less than 200$) was wondering how close your lens is to that,, Is yours a canon or other brand,,
    Those are some great images to aspire to

    My lens is basically the same as yours. It is Canon brand, but it is a beginners lens for sure. Actually, I have heard that the Sigma lens is even better.

    Nice shots. I took M31 and gave it more detail and color as well as the stars.

    Those are both pretty impressive for a camera with a zoom lens for sure, is this with the mount guided, or unguided, or just short exposures?
    Nice work

    Nice pics James.

    I also bought yesterday a new lens for my EOS
    I was considering also the canon 75-300 and the Sigma 70-300mm F/4.0-5.6 APO DG Macro Canon as candidates, but the sigma got not so god reviews and a good model of the canon 75-300 is a bit too expensive for me.
    So at the end I went for the new Canon EF-S 55-250mm F/4.0-5.6 iS STM

    I have not been able to test it on the stars.

    It is always rain in the last times here... :-(
