Finally my imaging rig is starting to come together. Ive been working on upgrades like better tripod, dewbands, modded camera...
Anyways, here is few testshots, B33 is bit overexposed on the stars. Because I accidentally left ISO at 1600, also way too noisy to lift stuff up from shadows. :cry:

Horsehead and NGC2024:

Nikon D5100 (full spectrum mod)
Astrotrac TT320X-AG
TS Imaging Star 70mm f/6.78 quadruplet ED
90x1min, total exposure time ~ 1,5 hours.

Horsehead and M42 widefield:
Nikon D5100 (full spectrum mod)
Astrotrac TT320X-AG
Sigma 180mm f/2.8 macro @ f/4 + core of M42 taken from another image to prevent over-exposing.
63x3min, total exposure time ~ 3 hours.

C&C welcome!

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
You're a ghost driving a meat-coated skeleton made from stardust, riding a rock, hurtling through space. Fear Nothing!

When and where were these taken? I guess you do not want clouds or passing cars' headlights anywhere near you.
About the post processing, are these 'sandwich' pictures or is your tracker really that accurate?
I am pretty sure that just buying the right equipment does not guarantee results such as these...
No meteorites, no satellites, no Finnair planes. You chose the frames or there were no disturbances?
Absolutely beautiful results. So many sloppy astrophotographers around nowadays. These are top notch.
Helkkarin hyviä. Sorry if I am curious but that's me.
