M63 - The Sunflower Galaxy
one of the first shots taken using my autoguided eight-inch Celestron
SCT riding an ASGT equitorial mount. Guiding was provided by a Q-Guider
camera running PHD guiding software and mounted in a modified Celestron
50mm finder scope.
camera used was the modified Canon Rebel 1000xs. This image is a stack
of 51 90-second IS0-800 subs stacked in Nebulosity 2. It must be noted
that sky conditions were less than optimal for Dewey as we had a large
forest fire going on near Flagstaff at the time. Things were just a
little hazy probably due to smoke from the fire.
