This was the second session with this comet. A combination of binos for visual and a bit of widefield photography to capture this comet (DSLR + iOptron Skytracker V2). Started by locating the comet with my binos and rigged the iOptron and DSLR after that. Wanted to get both the comet and the Pleiades in frame. This is my, so far, sixth observed comet.
M45 was my first astrophotography object, piggybacked a Nikon D3200 with a 200mm lens to get this shot: (Not the greatest shot I've ever taken)
Magnificent cluster for anyone with a small telescope(or large), how many stars can you count?
Mead LX200 (Cabrillo Observatory)
People in astrophotography go galaxy crazy. It must be something about the scale of them. They defy logic and imagination so of course, they must be photographed. I agree.
The following photo was taken using Spock, the LX200 at Cabrillo University. The resulting image was then processed for color and sharpness.
Got to see this little point of blue light during the 2014 October Lunar Eclipse. Wasn't able to see it through the telescope since I was using it to watch the eclipse. Waiting to see it again when we swing around the sun once again later this year.
Took me a few nights to find this nebula. It has a nice visible ring shape,even in a small telescope. I wasn't able to see the star in the middle since my old telescope wasn't the best. Waiting for Lyra to come around again to view it in my Skyview Pro.
