Saturn with a 6 inches refractor

This image of Saturn has been obtained after processing a 4 minutes video took with a Casio Exilim digicam. In order to avoid refractor chromatic aberration a Fringe Killer filter was used in combination with a 14mm eyepiece and a Barlow lens.

M31 – Andromeda Galaxy

I took last winter 92 shots of 30 seconds to M31 using my 300mm telephoto lens. An EQ6 equatorial mount holded the Canon EOS 450d (Rebel XTi) camera. After stacking them with DeepSkyStacker and some post-processing with PSP9, here it is the result. The imaga shows M32 and NGC 110 too.  I hope you enjoy it:
