astrophotography of ngc253 with William Optics GT71 using asi 294 mcpro colour camera

NGC 253 “The Sculpture Galaxy ” astrophotography with WO GT 71

  • Telescope William Optics GT 71 with Field Flattener 6A2 (effective focal ratio f4.7, FL = 336mm)
  • Camera: ZWO ASI 294 MC Pro, Gain 400, Temp -10Deg. C
  • Mount: Ioptron IEQ30
  • Alignment: PoleMaster
  • Image: Single 60 second exposure
  • Calibration: none
  • Location: Dayboro, South East Queensland, Bortle Class 4

Very impressive results imaging NGC253 with the ASI 294 MC Pro one shot colour camera with the above image a single 60 second exposure only. No stacking or calibration, only slight levels and curves adjustments in Photoshop. The small globular cluster on the lower left is NGC288.
