The sky finally cleared, it was a warmer evening than its been, and my new C6-NGT was just waiting to get outside to focus some photons on the Canon Rebel T3's sensor. I would have attempted to autoguide, but I left my USB to serial dongle at work, so I had to run unguided for these images. The first image I captured was that of the Horsehead and Flame nebula. I wanted to image subjects that I've imaged before with the camera lens.
Theres a substantial amount of noise as I took these from my backyard, where the light pollution is bad enough to show up. This scope is fast - these images are only 1 min subs. Both are running about 20 frames.
The second object I photographed was M42, and it came out incredible.
I hope you agree with me. These are by far the best I've taken so far.
