    Default M20 Trifid Nebula, Lagoon Nebula, and M81-M82



    ISO 1600
    Prime F.
    exp. 1:15 x 2
    1 dark frame
    Manual Dobsonian Barn Door
    Orion Skyquest 10" Dob.

    I finally got some images to stack in DSS. I have added another piece of plywood to my base of my Dob. Barn Door, so it will rotate and line up with NCP (North Cel. Pole) better. Still too much vibration, but I will keep trying. Just having fun getting pictures.

    Great stuff! All you have to remember to is keep having fun! The M81 and M82 shots make it look like they are just hanging out in the night sky and visible with the unaided eye. Keep it up!
