M 42 / B 33 / NGC 1977 / NGC 2024 / M 78

Compared to amateur telescopes, it is literally a wider look with the 200 [mm], F 2.8 lens at a group of objects in the Bernard’s Loop. However the loop itself is not visible on picture (caught small piece in the lower left corner – red cloud), and the main subject of the photo are objects, like the well known M42 nebula in Orion. Next to left NGC 1977 – The Running Man with his small group of stars.

M45 – Pleiades

The Pleiades also known as the Seven Sisters and Messier 45, are an open star cluster containing middle-aged, hot B-type stars located in the constellation of Taurus. It is among the star clusters nearest Earth and is the cluster most obvious to the naked eye in the night sky.

The cluster is dominated by hot blue and luminous stars that have formed within the last 100 million years. Reflection nebulae around the brightest stars were once thought to be left over material from the formation of the cluster, but are now considered likely to be an unrelated dust cloud in the interstellar medium through which the stars are currently passing.

Astro Pixel Processor – basic tutorial

APP - calibration buttons

The main goal of this description is to provide you, with the ability to quickly stack photos using the APP (Astro Pixel Processor) program, in the shortest possible time with minimal the baggage of knowledge need. I share with you what I know. I have gained experience using the APP program on my own.

Remember that each photo of collected lights is different and the examples below, will not necessarily work for your collected photo lights. You should always look for the optimal settings and solutions for each lights. Please, note that I am not the Developer of the APP (Astro Pixel Processor), but only I’m user like you. I don’t know answer to every question that bothers you. Nor am I any representative of the APP Developer or its publisher.
