Deep-Sky images with G2-8300C camera here

Below is a selection of deep sky images using the GSTAR-EX3 and GSTAR-EX4 USB high resolution CMOS video cameras.

NGC 3372 - Carina Nebula - Vixen 130mm Newtonian at f/5 with GSTAR-EX4

 


M64 Black Eye galaxy - 12 inch Newtonian at f/5 with GSTAR-EX4
 

NGC253 using a Vixen 130mm f/5 Newtonian from suburban backyard using with GSTAR-EX3 set to 30 second, unguided exposures and later stacked. Auto Dark Frame subtraction feature was used during exposures so no need to apply them later during the stacking process.
