Cheap Astro Imaging!

This was done to show all those folks like myself who cannot afford thousands of dollars worth of astronomical equipment – you CAN enjoy imaging.

Is it the best quality; no! The idea is to see what the naked eye cannot in a scope.

These were taken with a Tasco scope I found for 13 dollars in the thrift store. I used a Skyraider agc 1.2 guide cam to capture the images using Mallincam software. – stacked a few in astro toaster.

The mount is a Bresser exos2 automated with stepper motors and EQ mod, not guided only tracking with 1 min subframes.  I am by no means a pro or claiming to be – it’s just good fun and amazing to see this in our amazing Universe.
