How to take a picture of a Nebula or Galaxy
Basic Processing of an Astro-Photo

I created a graphic showing the basic steps needed to turn a raw stacked astrophoto into the final image. This was from data collected in July at the CCCA Observatory in Wellandport, Ontario. I wish I had framed the object better so I could have included M20, oh well, next year!

    I thought I saw a Meade DSI attached to the finder scope..I assume for guiding purposes. Does the finder work well with that, and would it work well with the Orion Star Shooter Autoguider CCD?

    Sorry for the delay in my reply! Yes it is a Meade DSI, but its not attached to a finder scope, its the Orion Mini 50mm Guidescope:

    Works great a doesn't add a lot of weight.. plus its under $100!
