M31-The Andromeda Galaxy on 9/6/13

Here’s the other thing I was imaging. Because of the low number of subs and lack of flat frames, there are quite a few dust donuts visible on this image. I may spring for an EL panel or something to do good flat frames… We’ll see.

Boy, it was nice to be out again. And the Cardinals won, so that was a bonus. 🙂

M31-Andromeda Galaxy on 11/25/09

I recently bought a 135mm f/2.8 lens off of eBay. It’s an old Soligar (it’s about my age) and has a manual focus, Because my DSI uses a T-mount as well as this lens, I just bought a couple spacers and now I’m able to use my DSI to take widefield shots like this one. With my telescope, I can’t get the entire Andromeda Galaxy into the frame with my DSLR, but with this lens, it fits on my little DSI just fine. I hope to do a more imaging like this soon.
