    Default Work In Progress M4 M8 M16 M20 M22 M83 M84/86



    Hi guys, I'm trying to complete some of these for months but still no luck so i have decided to post these unfinished work till i get more data.

    All of them are quickly processed in PI/PS without darks, flats etc and without proper noise reduction or other advanced processing. equipment used are in my signature bellow.

    20min of M8 from home, bortle 5/6



    20min of M16 from home, bortle 5/6



    30min of M4 from home, some light trail in it. its not a satellite trail since same line on all 6 photos unchanged. no power cables etc in the path. i couldn't find whats it. any idea?



    5min single frame of M22 at home



    1.5 hours of M20 from dark site bortle 3, good data. need at least another hour or two and proper processing.



    1.5 hours of M83 Southern Pinwheel from dark site bortle 3, good data. need at least another hour or two.



    2+ hours of part of Markarian's chain, data were low quality due to heavy dew. may redo or add few more hours

    Beautiful collection of images "G". Amazes me how you capture so much of the details and nebulosity with such short total exposure times.

    Well done.

    Very fine job with your images geethq!

    They are all very beautiful, but I really like M16, M20, M83, and Jupiter.

    Very, very nice images with fine details and color.

    Thank you!
