deep-sky imaging by Peter Bresseler

techniques

lucky imaging and conventional CCD imagingMy vision, Use a cheap and simple equipment and achieve good and deep results  ... no stress, no guiding, no bias, no cooling... and have fun with lucky imaging and fast CMOS Cams :)

currently, I am working with an ASI294MC pro and ASI290mm mini. Here my first light, NGC 2392
