You may have seen me buzzing around various bits of this forum - but I actually haven't posted anything that is my mainstream work - until now.
I use a small Sky 90 refractor (90mm object lens diameter) and a Starlight Xpress SXVF-M25C one-shot 6 megapixel colour camera to take deep-sky images. The kit piggybacks on an 11" Celestron Nexstar GPS which is used as the guide scope (slight case of overkill) - but of course everything uses the Celestron's superb mount to move around.

is a nice pair of nebula in Auriga I took a few weeks back. Noel Carboni [Florida, U.S.A.] does all the serious image processing on the data, I just carry out initial colour conversion and stacking.
Hope you like the image
