Deepsky Objects of the Summer Milkyway 
on 7/9/05 and 7/13/05


Here are some new images taken with my Canon Digital Rebel camera.  These images are of  the better deepsky objects of the summer Milkyway.  Lens used was a Canon 200mm F/2.8 (about 320mm effective,) 800 ISO and exposures of 30 seconds.   Individual frames were combined and stacked with IRIS to generate these images.


M22 Globular Cluster in Sagittarius on 7/9/05 - 4x30 sec Frames Stacked in IRIS.  200mm F/2.8, 800 ISO.  There are actually 4 globular clusters visible in this image.  Can you find them?  (Click here to see them pointed out.)
