Star Adventurer Calendar

This collection shall be a successor for my discontinued DSO calendar. I want give especially beginners a short overview of rewarding DSO targets using the Star Adventurer.

This collection is not intended to be complete and I’ll show only targets which I’ve already photographed to give an example how objects looks at different focal lengths up to 400mm.
All listed objects are acquired by myself and the Skywatcher Star Adventurer.

Default sorting by current visibility by months. The table is searchable and can be sorted individually by clicking on a header column (twice for descending order).

Also see the difference between unmodified/modified DSRL on NGC7000 North America Nebula and the Cygnus Loop images:

NGC7000 North America Nebula:

NGC6992/NGC6960 Cygnus Loop:

 

To be continued…
