The beautiful Flaming Star nebula located in the constellation of Auriga. This is just over an hour and a half exposure time taken with an old Canon 350D and Willams Optics GT81 telescope.
Thanks for looking.

Amazing, Fabulous. I am trying astrophotography myself but find it difficult to see what I'm doing in the dark. Any tips?

Assume you also used tracking gear for this one. Did you use any filters?

Hi SkySkape, good luck with it all Wink

Thank you for the positive comments. My Canon 350D has had it's IR filter removed which helps with emission / reflection nebula but apart from that everything is standard. As for seeing in the dark......I use a head torch with a red candy wrapper over it.
