While I do have my own observatory and I enjoy using it immensely, the L&A DSVA is a great place to go to see the faintest fuzzys in the night sky while listening to the nearby Whippoorwill colony during the summer months. Its also a great place that is open to the public so often […]
Quick post where I mixed several nights worth of imaging of our nearest galaxy, Andromeda. Imaging Equipment:– Nikon Z6– William Optics RedCat51– Losmandy GM8 (Modified)– Orion StarShoot Guide Camera This is a combination of 26 subs of 20sec at ISO8000 and 48 subs of 300secs at ISO800 (giving a combined integration time of 4.14 hours. […]
Nikon Z6 ISO Astro Test
So I did a quick test last night while trying to collect more data on Andromeda Galaxy. I continued most of the night with my standard 5 minutes (300seconds) at ISO800 for most of the imaging session then jumped up 20sec subs at ISO8000. The purpose of this was to see how much extra noise […]
While Jupiter is at opposition this year (closest distance to earth) it is also around the Summer Equinox which means that its low on the horizon for northern hemispheres. I decided to try to get an image of Jupiter before it was gone for the season (behind a tall tree for me). Location – North […]
Happy Canada Day!

It’s a sunny hot day here in Napanee Ontario as we celebrate Canada day by running around and trying to fix lawnmower engines… I’m starting to think I need to take a course in […]

North Shore Observatory – Temporary Set-up
So I have an observatory now 🙂
Dreaded Under Construction!

Comet Love Joy
Comet Love Joy came by in January 2015 in the middle of a cold spell here in Ontario, and if you don’t have the money for a fancy camera, scope as you wisely put all your money into an excellent mount. Well then you are off to the races when imaging in the middle of […]
