Flying bat nebula

Hi friends of startools! this is a very faint subject, it consists of approximately 10 hours integration time in RGB and 10 in HA, HA integration time should be greater but I had to invest 10 hours in RGB just to have a little signal to extract the color! http://astrob.in/362057/rawthumb/gallery/get...

Summer wide fields

M27 - Fast newtonian is back!

Fast newtonian has this "bad name" for the difficulty of collimating them ... completely true! but at last we succeeded in having good star shapes and we started to using it again!

Re: no clouds, at last! Deneb and surroundings, Tulip Nebula

First two results: stacked with DSS, post processing entirely...
