Deep sky with the K-1


here is a shot from last night. The big galaxy upper right is NGC 7331 with several satellite galaxies above ot, and lower left there's the famous Stephan's quintet, a group of 4 distant galaxies (350 millions light-years away) with a fifth foreground galaxy with a bluer color.

NGC7331 and Stephan's quintet, Pegasus

Taken with my K-1 Mark II and a newtonian telescope (800mm focal length, f/4) from my heavily light-polluted backyard.

61 frames of 60sec. each at 800 ISO, about 15 dark frames, light frames and offset frames.
