I used an Orion EON ED80, an 80/500mm @ f/6.5 Refracting Telescope.
The Camera, at Prime Focus, was a Canon 60DA astrocamera.
I connect the camera to a laptop to capture & download images. I shoot calibration frames to stack.
This image was shot November 18th, 2020 from my observatory.
was out shooting Comet 2020 M3, ATLAS last night under unfavorable
conditions. It started out down in the Statesville skydome. As it rose
up into good dark sky the Moon Rose.
going to wait about a week or so and try again when the Moon is out of
the picture. I was shooting 30 seconds at 1600 iso with an Orion
EON ED80, prime focus at f/5.0 with a Canon 60Da.

2020 M3, Comet ATLAS shot December 10th, 2020 at the Shiloh
Observatory. Probably my last parting shot as ATLAS moves back into
Canon 60Da Astrocamera at prime focus of an Orion EON ED80 with a 0.50 Focal Reducer.
in the bottom right corner of this image you will find NGC 1893, an
open cluster in the constellation Auriga. It is about 12,400 light
The star cluster is embedded in the HII region of IC
410. Images of the star cluster by the Chandra X-ray Observatory
suggest that it contains approximately 4600 young stellar objects Image
