Well, it was cloudy last night, but tonight it cleared up just before it got dark, so I imaged 2 objects. The first of which was M13, the 2nd, M104. I have not attempted the Sombrero yet, so I thought I'd experiment a bit using short exposures. Tonight's image uses 50 - 30 second frames. I must say, I'm quite impressed.
30 second exposures using the 6", f/5 at iso 1600. 50 frames stacked in DSS using a 2X drizzle. slight sharpening and image stretch done in Photoshop, noise reduction done using Noel Carboni's astro tools.
I'll post M13 tomorrow. its midnight as I write this, so I pretty much ran out of time.
