The camera raw images are stacked in DSS.
Didn't use any darks or flats.
Afterwards I edit the TIFF file in Camera Raw and Photoshop. No special kind of editing just tweaking the curves, levels and contrast and correcting CA and vignetting.
Maybe need to do them over again and try to get more balance in the overall image. I also messed up with the vignetting correction.

Didn't knew a camera like that could capture such solar details, very impressive!

Yep that heat doesnt do any good to the camera. Funny though, we had 30ºC during the day and at night it dropped to 10º. Initially wasn't going to do any imaging but when I saw the clear skies and low temps I couldn't resist/refuse. It was also the last day of the trip and didn't had any good opportunities yet. Started around 2am and ended around 5am.
Happy with the results though, as I'm still a beginner noob in astrophotography and still much to learn.

Last night I went up to Glacier National Park to do some night shooting. I had an experience that in all the years of going up there day or night I've never had. I had a friend with me and we were in the tunnel up on the Going to the Sun. This was about 1 am and the road was deserted. As I was setting up for this shot I heard footsteps in the tunnel coming towards us. I shined my light down to see if someone was walking down the road. There was no one. I went back to setting up the shot and I heard the footsteps start up again. They stopped directly behind us and that's when we both got the feeling that we were not alone in the tunnel, even though we could not see anything. After about 30 seconds the steps continued on the other direction and a couple of minutes later they were coming back towards us. We spent around an hr in the tunnel shooting and the entire time we had this visitor with us, watching us. Interestingly enough a few years ago bout half a mile up the road from where we were a young man was pushed off a cliff by his new bride. So this was the first ghost experience I've ever had in glacier. FYI - that's not a ghost in the shot.

With all the devastation from the hurricanes one thing that is not mentioned hardly at all in the news is the wildfires in montana. I can turn in every direction and find a wildfire. Last night I went up to one of my favorite places Glacier National Park to shoot this


The Big Dipper sets above the Sprague fire in Glacier National Park. If you look closely you can see the fire looking back at you with hungry eyes.

Andromeda galaxy with a Canon EF 75-300mm lens

I stacked about 2.5 minutes of shots.
6400 f/4.5 set at 100mm.

It's not that great of a shot, though it's my 1st try with a cheap lens. For fun, I might try 200mm and 300mm if the weather permits.

awesome buddy, looking great!

I would stay with 100mm (exposure time limit) so you can get some more shots on different nights at the same focal distance. Then you can stack them all together.
If you can get to 15 minutes or more you will notice a big difference in detail and quality even with your 'cheap' lens.
Editing will also get easier.
Can't notice any coma or CA so I believe this lens isn't too bad after all.
Well done!

Good ideal, I will try that at 200mm too. At 100mm the image is a bit small. Maybe if I kick it up to 200mm, it'll have more detail. The lens is blind at 300mm...

A little cloudy tonight, waiting to see if it clears up.... I will try stacking more at 100mm and see how she goes with 16 minutes of exposure time.


Oops: Correction,
8 minutes not 2.5 minutes. It was 150 shots at 3.2 seconds.

Where did I get 2.5 min? Ah... 150/3.2 haha... it was late when I posted.

--Thanks

Haha

That explains the quality


Last night they were working on the electrical grid in town so they had to cut the electricity for 2 hours, no streetlights yes!
Took the opportunity to do some stargazing and took some images.
Cassiopeia constellation
14 images +-3minutes/shot
total of 39 minutes
50mm iso800 f3.5


Orion was also peeping on the horizon but still too low too get rid of the light pollution here. Next month hopefully better.


With so much stars it's difficult to find the actual constellation

Here are the outlines



There are many other nebulae and galaxies in the picture but the only ones I know is the double cluster in Perseus on the left and the small pink nebula in the middle is Pacman.
Always welcome to name the rest in the picture
