Here is first process of M27 taken last night from DaltonSkyGazer Observatory. Skies were fair, high moisture content, about 3.75 on scale of 1 to 10. The Milky Way looked more like a soft fog bank, individual stars were not discernible. This image is stack of 1 hr 45 minutes of lights and 45 minutes of darks taken with the Canon T2i mounted on the Meade 80mm 5000 ED APO. ISO 800 35 180 second exposures. Processed in Photoshop and Image Plus, stacked in DSS. I am finding DSS to be very buggy software past few months, hope they come out with updates soon. Click Here for Larger Image.
