Star field around NGC6565


Single 5 minute exposure just to see what it might look like :)

  • Date: 23/05/2014
  • Location: Adelaide, South Australia
  • Camera: Canon 450d, modded with IR filter removed
  • Mount: HEQ5PRO
  • Scope: GSO 8″ f/5 Newtonian
  • Autoguider: Orion Starshoot AG

Tweaked a bit in Photoshop.

NGC6565 is a planetary nebula, but I can’t see it in this field. Astrometry identifies its location based on known information about the field, it’s a bit hard to read the text, but it’s right in the middle.
