Astro Photo

I have images from two serious astrophotographers today.

This is 1st light by David Rosenthal – really seasonal objects – Leo Triplet

BORG/Pentax 125SD F4.6

Very nice and sharp, David

Enjoy imaging with BORG.

Next seems to be a kind of something interesting too. Panagiotis Xipteras in Germany took Quasar (Mag 21) from the city. According to him, IDAS LPS-P2 filter did great job to effectively block city lights.
