That’s a great shot of the wizard on your DSLR , if that’s the first time you used guiding. Well done!


I have been struggling to get some good distant galaxies recently

If its a clear night, the moons full. No moon, clouds! You know the thing..


Anyway here is one of the Sunflower Galaxy, as close to it I could get.  Its only 1hour total exposure time.

Shot with a Sky watcher 200PDS newt (1000mm) with a luminous 2.5X Barlow ( Focal length 2500mm)

No Filters. ASI 294MCPRO Cooled cam.


I have no idea if this is a good result or not?, I think its ok for how deep it is but perhaps someone could tell me?

The PMC mount is definitely not a problem here even at maxed out/boosted focal length.

Once again I am astounded that PH2 Graph line never went above plus and minus 1 during capturing!


For those wishing to try this, I advise using a 2x Barlow on the guide scope as well (total 600mm)

That’s the trick!
