Astrophotographers hangout. Invite friends and notice chat bar on bottom.

I went up to the clubs observatory (Now the ONLY place I will image:) on Saturday night. It was a great night as there were a few other diehards out there with me all night. Other than the cold toes I think everyone enjoyed themselves. Im happy with this, although I did have to clone out some strange blue orbs (3 in total) Possibly a dew issue?? I will re-inspect the problem after adding mush more time to this glorious autumn star cluster.

Hey Trevor, Thanks......I am depating with my self about getting it moded only because I would like to get a CCD and a Hyperstar but that may be a long way away before that happens so the debate in my head continues. Wellandport, I was there many years ago. I grew up in Brampton and when my wife and I started dateing our favorite thing to do was go on day long Sunday drives, have car will travel type of thing. We would go everywhere in Ont. We were 16-17 back then so quite a few years ago. I love the escarpment, lots of great places to visit.

Thanks guys. Philip - The club is in Wellandport, Ontario, about 40 minutes from St. Catharines. As for the modding, I would say mod it if you can! I can get away with the reflection nebula's, but the emission nebs aren't so great. I've heard from other members that an un-modded cam produces bluey-purple nebulas, which looks cool, but I know there's more (red) detail in there.

Very nicely done!

Wow man, that is a beauty of a shot Trevor. Where was the club at (sorry just trying to stay in touch with my home country). I see that you have noted that your camera is unmodded, I now have a new T1i but I have yet to image with the telescope because it is still way to hot here in AZ. My T1i is also not modded so I was wondering if you have any suggestions for me. The image you have posted here looks awesome, nice job man.

Haha Trev, thank you for the comments everyone. I can't wait to see new images from you guys this fall.

I'd risk a toe for an image like that. Well done.
