Wide Field M8 and M20

SO i picked up a small iEQ30Pro to manage the 6D and Sigma 150-600mm lens. The mount is beautiful and works well even if second hand. It mounts the camera flawlessly and also is able to run for 3-5 mins unguided !  

The lagoon and triffid at 500mm on 6D iso 1600 - 10 x 3 min exposures unguided

 

So it takes lot of coincidences to make the most of the weather !

IT HAD TO BE CLEAR! There needed to enough dark and enough time without work! and there had to be a small moon (although it is at 1st Quarter.)   When all of those items come together then its Telescope time !!! If only the bugs knew to remember this fact Image a couple of objects here is the first on this is a 25 min combination of the Lagoon M8. A series of 5 min Subs were used and stacked in Pixinsight etc.
