Flintstone Stargazing

Album: Messier Objects

The following are images of all 110 Messier Objects that I captured for my 2008 Photo Messier Marathon.  All of these images were taken using a Meade DSI-IIc camera at prime focus on my LXD75 SN-8 telescope. They are all stacked images of 15 images of 15 seconds for a total image time of 225 seconds.



  1. Very nice, what scope, camera, and mount did you use?

  2. Thanks – if you click on any of the images on my site, the flickr page should give you a bunch of details. That said, since all of these are the same, I’ll add that information on this page. 🙂

  3. The way you captured the ‘almost’ visual interpretation is to be commended. Makes them more beautiful.

    • Thanks – obviously, the color isn’t accurate (at least I can’t see any color in them) but it does give you some sense of what they look like.
