Astro Photography

For Christmas I treated myself to a telescope to have a go at some astro-photography.

This was my first attempt, the Orion Nebula, taken 18th January 2024 from my back garden just outside Grimsby.

    I guess you use it in conjunction with apps so you know what you are aiming at? It seems very clear ~ does it require much post processing?

      The post processing is mainly stacking the images together to effectively increase the exposure time, which is done by the computer software. This image is 10 separate 5 minute exposures . There are free options for this such as Deep Sky Stacker but I’ve opted for Astro Pixel Processor here.
      Then a few levels tweaks on Lightroom & job done.
