Description

12th September 2018.
This is the first time I went 100% for imaging with my new DIY EQ platform and dobsonian telescope. For 3 hours I tried to capture as many frames as possible. This is a stack of 405, 5 second exposures. The galaxy is barely there in the noise but I am happy that it is visible at all! It's the M74 galaxy - the same size as our own, but located 30 milion light years from home.

Po raz pierwszy skupiłem się w 100% na fotografii korzystając z mojej nowej DIY platformy paralaktycznej oraz teleskopu dobsona. Przez 3 godziny starałem się zebrać jak najwięcej klatek. Jest to stack 405, 5 sekundowych ekspozycjo. Galaktyka jest ledwo widoczna w szumie, ale cieszę się, że w ogóle tam jest! To galaktyka M74 - taka sama jak nasza, ale położona 30 milionów lat świetlnych od domu.
