My own Astrophotography

According to me Nebulas are the most beautiful astronomical objects. They cover a big viewing angle and you only need camera lenses for the bigger and closer ones. They are huge gas clouds in our own galaxy. But they are weak and a dark places is needed.

M42 Orion Nebula 1997    
Orion Nebula


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 SkyWatcher EQ6 Details of M45
Canon 6D Sigma 150 mm x1 SkyWatcher Star Adventurer Wide field
Canon 6D Canon 50 mm x1 SkyWatcher Star Adventurer Very wide field

Nebulas are very beautiful, to get best results you need a camera that can catch the H-Alpha radiation. Either a modified DSLR camera with filter removed or a mono chrome with a narrow band H-Alpha filer. Very long exposures and a dark sky. When I need a dark sky I must use my light weight SkyWatcher Star Adventurer mount and do a travel to a dark place. But on the limit to be precise enough for 5 minute exposures with a 150 mm lens.
