I shall be putting up the Deep-Sky Image of the Week very first thing on a Monday morning for all to share.

The first Deep-Sky Image of the Week has been sent in to us by Carole Pope who took this excellent image of M33 whilst at the Kelling star party.

This was taken over 4 nights.
24-9-11, 22 x 5min
26-9-11, 13 x 5min
27-9-11, 14 x 5min
28-9-11, 18 x 5min
Total 5 1/2 hours

All with a modified Canon 450D 800 ISO no filter, using the ED120
Guided with QHY5 and PHD

Thank you Carole for your contribution – much appreciated – and congratulations on being our first “Deep-Sky Image of the Week” contributor 🙂

I know from personal experience how tough it is to capture a decent image of M33!!
