Messier 104 - The Sombrero Galaxy by Steven Rosenow
Via Flickr:
Not bad for 35 minutes’ worth of exposure. Say hello to my friend, the ‘Sombrero’ galaxy (aka Messier 104). I’ve waited five long years for this sucker. Tonight, I finally nabbed it! :) 35 one-minute exposures @ ISO3200 using a Nikon D5500 and a 10-inch Meade LX200. Stacked in Deep Sky Stacker and fine-tuned in Adobe Photoshop CS6. Aw hell yes. It feels GREAT to be back in the ol’ saddle again! <3

Jupiter from April 16th. by Steven Rosenow
Via Flickr:
A capture of Jupiter on April 16, 2017. The capture was executed at 02:35:15 AMPDT with conclusion of video capture at 02:36:45. A resulting stack of the best 75% of 4,400 frames from the video was compiled in the beta version of Autostakkert!3 for a final averaged output image. Finishing touches completed in Registax6 and Adobe Photoshop, with final export to Lightroom. This was the second best of nine videos captured. Out of the nine, two were usable, the remaining seven were discarded. A 10-inch Meade LX200 telescope was used in addition to a Nikon D5500 DSLR and a 5x barlow for this capture.
