Astrophotography Galaxy Planetary Nebula

Astrophoto: Surfboard-Galaxy and Owl Nebula – 03/24

Galaxy season has begun. This year, I’m kicking it off with the Surfboard Galaxy and the Baader Travel Companion.

This year, I started the galaxy season with a larger field. It was simply for technical reasons. I wanted to successfully confirm the changes to the configuration before switching the focal length.
