Photos of Stars, including open and globular clusters
M92 - Taken on 6/15/07 using Meade DSI-C on my Celestron C9.25 @ F/6.3. Stack of 20 exp @ 30 sec each.
M5 shot through the C-8 with a F/6.3 reducer. The Exposure was 15 min on Fuji Superia 800. This shot needed no editing at all, I just scanned it in and posted it, I think I like this film. I was real happy with my guiding on this one. The stars are all almost perfectly round. I think I'm getting the hang of guiding.
This is M13 shot through my C-8. The exposure was 15 min. on Kodak Royal Gold 1000 film and a Minolta camera. I had trouble finding a guide star through my OAG, so the guiding was not that great. I am going to switch to a guide scope, so next time it should be better. The image was scanned and 2 layers were combined in Adobe Photoshop using the Overlay mode.
This is M15 shot at prime focus on my C-8. Like all other shots this night, the exposure was 20 min. on un-hypered Fuji Super G 800 film with a Minolta. The negative was scanned and the curves adjusted using a procedure from Jerry Lodriguss.
