My own Astrophotography

Galaxies are very exiting, other islands of stars out there. Some of them are relative bright and I can take photos of them from our light polluted balcony. The Andromeda Galaxy is 3 degrees wide, that is 6 times wider than our Moon. You can use a 200 mm or longer telephoto lens when photographing this galaxy, with a telescope even more details.

If I had taken those photographs today (2019) I would use the following of my equipment.

Camera Lens / Telescope Reducer / Barlow Mount Comment
Canon 6D TS130, 910 mm x1 - x2 SkyWatcher EQ6 Small galaxies
Canon 6D Canon 300 mm x1 SkyWatcher Star Adventurer M31 and M33 galaxy

Only the M31 Andromeda and M33 Triangulum galaxy is big enough for my Canon 300 mm lens. Most galaxies need long time exposures, something like 60 x 1 minute to reduce the noise.
