This was shot unguided through am 80mm f/6 Stellarvue Nighthawk II on a modified HEQ5 mount. The camera was an un-modified Canon 350D at 800ISO.
This was shot on the first night with both the scope and camera and was my first attempt at digital astrophotography. Only 4 subs were taken, 3 of 180 seconds and 1 of 240 seconds with 3 dark frames. Processed with DeepSkyStacker, CS2 and The GIMP.
