Taken on May 13, 2019, with about 1 minute of integration time.

Titan1.png

Taken on May 31, 2020. The image was altered to make Saturn's largest moon, Titan, (the dot in the bottom left) more apparent.


Jupiter

Taken on May 13, 2019, with about 1 minute of integration time. The orange speck off to the left is Jupiter's volcanic moon, Io.


M57, Ring Nebula

Taken on October 15, 2019. This is a single short exposure frame. The noise is really high because my camera's gain is just about maxed out.


ISS

Unfortunately the image is over exposed. At the time of this image, the first manned SpaceX dragon capsule, carrying Douglas Hurley and Robert Behnken, was about 45 seconds behind the ISS as seen from the ground.


My Setup

8-inch dobsonian and ASI120MM planetary camera. I've seen it said that 8-inch isn't big enough to see much of the Messier catalog, but I suspect it is if your conditions are dark enough. So far, I'm at 34 Messier Objects. Also unless otherwise stated, all images were taken in central Wisconsin.
