My latest from last night...Lagoon and Trifid Nebula and the Soul Nebula.  

Both shot at 3200 ISO, 120sec exposures, Canon T5i astro-modified 
Lagoon and Trifid: 30 Light, 20 Dark, 20 Flat, 20 Bias
Soul Nebula: 90 Light, 20 Dark, 20 Flat, 20 Bias

Processed with Deep Sky Stacker and Photoshop with Astro Plug Ins

Lagoon and Trifid was shot looking south over Ogden/Salt Lake City Utah at about 30 degrees elevation.  Lots of light pollution and about 95% moon illumination.  The Optolong L-Enhance Filter is AWESOME!  I am totally surprised by the detail that came through on that shot.

PHD tracking total consistently .4 and below...

3-D printed lithophane of an image of the Moon that I shot on 04/06/2020 with my ES 127 FCD-100 with 3" FF / 0.7x FR, QHY 600M camera, and ES PMC-8 G-11.  

Moon image.

Completed lithophane print.

Lithophane illuminated from behind.

The lithophane took 20.75 hours to print. I am pleased with the result with my first attempt.  I am currently printing another version that is a little thicker to get more contrast which will take 29.17 hours to print.
