Our galactic centre near Sagittarius. Lagoon and Trifid nebulae centre image.

Cannon EOS 400D unmodified with 75-300mm lens at F/5.6

12 x 2 minute exposures at ISO800

Piggybacked on fork mounted and polar aligned Nexstar 11 GPS

Manual guiding

Darks subtracted and processed with Deep Sky Stacker and Photoshop

The sky was beautiful tonight until the moon took over. Friday nights are my best night, but there are so many factors against limiting yourself to a particular night per week. I would have added more subs, but the extra light in the sky may have ruined it.

Anyway, I hope you all like it.

Cheers,

Baz.

A Super fine shot of our Milky Way, also a very nice wide angle shot.
