Antares Region from Spain

Postby carastro » Thu Jun 06, 2019 10:49 am

As stated in my Milky Way post, I am not great with camera lens imaging, but this target is too big for my scopes anyway, too low in the UK so no choice but to do it with a camera lens on holiday in Spain.

I imaged this 2 years ago from the same location with my DSLR, but this time I took my Atik460EX to capture it in luminance to add to the colour from the DSLR image.
This is the original DSLR image from 2017

Using only an ioptron Skytracker and having Bortle 5 skies and a nifty 50 lens this is probably the best I can do with my kit and skills.
Taken over 2 different holidays in Spain:

DSLR in 2017
Atik460EX Luminance only 2019
and combined Nifty 50 lens @ F3.5
DSLR approx 4 hours using Nifty 50 & Zoom lens
Lum 30 x 3mins + 16 x 2 mins combined
Not happy with the nebulosity around and below Antares itself but I think I need to be somewhere with a telescope (and Mosaic) rather than a camera lens to do this any better.
