60Da - First starlight (hooray)!

Live quite far north where the bright summer nights are turning a bit darker now, and got test pictures of M57 (the ring nebula in Lyra) and M27 (the dumbbell nebula) with one of my 60Da's and a WO 98/620mm APO with reducer (500 mm focal lenght at f/5.1). The first test images are very promising!

Directly from jpg's (have not have time to tame RAW files yet) without sharpening, only some slight fiddling with the curves and cropped 2400x1800 pixels).

M57 - the ring nebula - 6x1 min exposure (stacked images):

M27 - the dumbbell nebula - 6x2 min exposure (stacked images):

Canon EOS 60Da
