Canon 450Da @ ISO800, Canon EF L 70-200mm F2.8 @ 70mm F3.5, Skywatcher Star Adventurer mount
I have been doing astrophotography for only 2-3 months now since I got my Star Adventurer mount and have been perfecting my technique and routines in my back garden which is a Bortle 6 sky. This image was the product of my first trip to dark skies (Bortle 3). The difference blew me away, it still does when I look at this. Image is 58x3min unguided images with 87 bias, 45 flat and 60 darks used in calibration. The image was stacked and processed in PixInsight.
