Celestron c11 sct, skywatcher NEQ6 pro mount, Canon Eos 1100d self-modified and Astronomik CLS CCD clip filter.

Nice bright and compact Galaxy for F10 imaging. Been some good clear nights this month. So plenty of images.

Moving back to LRGB imaging in march. Just got delivery of my new Atik 383L+ camera and motorised filter wheel.

MY dslr has been a good camera to master the basics of deep sky imaging. But is struggles with the fainter objects.

32 five minute light frames at iso1600. 20 dark, bias and flats. Deep sky Stacker and Photoshop.
