Equipment:
Celestron CGEM Mount
Canon FD 300mm f/4 L
Sony a7RIII (unmodified)
Altair 60mm Guide scope
GPCAM2 Mono Camera

Acquisition:
Taos, NM: my backyard - Bortle 3
52 x 151" for 2hrs 10min and 50sec of exposure time.
10 dark frames
15 flats frames
15 bias frames
Guided

Software:
SharpCap
PHD2
DeepSkyStacker
Photoshop

My mount was polar aligned with SharpCap (what an amazing system for aligning). I'm not comfortable using my SCT as my lens yet. My solution is to piggyback my Sony a7RIII and adapted Canon FD 300mm f/4 L on a ADM dovetail rail on the top of my optical tube. I used DeepSkyStacker to combine all frames and then processed the TIFF file in Photoshop using my skill set and relying on the famous Astronomy Tools Action Set.

View Large On Black

I've been loving my friend Stan Jones' wide open stuff a lot lately. I'm sure his stream had something to do about why I shot this one wide open.

Follow this to see a Dustin's blog of the shoot, us eating and my comments on the days events.
