M33 from Lowell, Arkansas

#1

Post by bladekeeper » Sat Nov 30, 2019 3:29 am

Here is my rendition. This was captured on 18 November as a first light for my ES ED80 Desk Lamp. :)

Image: 29×180s lights, darks, flats, dark flats, bias
Scope: Explore Scientific ED80
Mount: Celestron AVX
Imaging: ZWO ASI294MC Pro cooled to -16° C
Guiding: Astromania 60mm guide scope, ZWO ASI120MM-S guide cam
Software: NINA to capture, DSS to stack, StarTools to process, GIMP for TIFF to JPG conversion for posting

I've been hoping for another opportunity to do a more serious attempt at this galaxy with the Desk Lamp, but rain rain rain rain...:)

Very nicely imaged, Bryan. That "Desk Lamp" has certainly proven its worth in your arsenal.

I've seen a lot of M33 images that are what I call "over-cranked", giving a somewhat artificial appearance of details. Your image a more natural look... very impressive.

Thanks for the share.

I agree with John. A very pleasing rendition of M33. An image to be proud of!

You and your desk lamp done good!

Nicely done Bryan; glad to see you got a break from the rain :D

You know what goes good with a desk lamp too? Eyepieces....:lol:

Have a good day,

Rain is at a lull presently but the wind has been howling fiercely and the clouds seem to like it here. :lol:

:D Ah, just razzin' ya... I figure if I don't, Gabrielle will... :lol:
I hear you on the weather; seems like the majority of us haven't had it good. We had freezing rain and snow here yesterday. The only good thing about that is once the snow system leaves the area, often times clear skies follow. That would be nice...

Hope the clouds get tired of your company and move on!
