Both of these images were taken from my back garden in Castleford on the 28th October 2014. They are both made up of around 45 60 second exposures (ISO 1600) stacked in Deep Sky Stacker with 30 darks and 30 bias frames. Then processed in photoshop. I used a Canon 1200d SLR mounted on a Skywatcher 200PDS with a HEQ5Pro.
Both images taken with a Celestron 5se scope and a QHY5L-II camera. A Celestron 2x Barlow was used for the closeup image.
This Full moon image was taken with a DSLR using an 8” SCT telescope. The image is a composite of 2 moon halves, each half being a high definition image made up of a stack of 30 DSLR images taken with 1/60th second exposure at ISO 640 with a Canon 40D. The two halves were then merged in Photoshop.
The Triangulum Galaxy is a spiral galaxy approximately 3 million light years from Earth in the constellation Triangulum. The Triangulum Galaxy is the third-largest member of our Local Group of galaxies, which includes the Milky Way, the Andromeda Galaxy and about 44 other smaller galaxies. It is one of the most distant permanent objects that can be viewed with the naked eye.
