Digging through my pictures, I found a picture of an exposure I took of the sky with my phone.

Wow. I really wish I had darker skies. That looks amazing. I've never even seen the milky way in my life. Darkest skies I've ever been under and actually looked up was somewhere around Bortle 6. I've been in a Bortle 1 area a few years ago during a camping trip, but I was too tired to look up and we...

Well, did a few modifications and darkened the dust. It's still nowhere near perfect, but it is what it is. I'll probably come back to it at a later time with more knowledge in processing. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/446814919904460810/615564413625171999/IC1396SHO.png In the meantime, I'v...

omg and this is in a light polluted area?  Yup, bortle 8. Light pollution is visible to the naked eye without taking long exposures. It's pretty bad, which is why I went narrowband. There's a site called astrobin you should start a collection on there I will, but right now I need a lot more experie...

Wow, narrowband really cuts through the light pollution!  I think you also need to shoot a fourth one for the Luminance channel. You only need luminance for RGB shots! You can't see the nebulosity with luminance as it doesn't cut out light pollution. Oh, thats a good point, but I also heard you can...

Wow you could even do deep sky imaging with an SE mount if you can get detail like that in such short exposures!  It's fine up to 30 sec exposures. Well yes, but you see, the price is... pricey. And doing sub 30s exposures really does not let the camera shoot to its full potential. How do you feel ...

I'm interested in that too, especially with LED lighting becoming more prevalent, which LP filters dont fight off so efficiently.  Any idea on how many stops of light the narrowband filters block?  I imagine exposures will need to be at least 8 stops longer?  With my UHC they're already 3 stops lon...

Thanks- I have light pollution filters also but got the wrong size unfortunately- I have eyepiece size O3, UHC and Imaging filters- all are 1.25" :(  What size did you get? I had special clip in filters that clips directly in front my my camera sensor and not on to my telescope. LP filters can...

Wow what equipment did you use? Some old equipment I got when I was 12 (Nexstar 6SE). I've since switched out the less-than-ideal mount, but I am still stuck with the scope and an even older camera (450D).  Some more recent DSO attempts. Forgive me for the noise and aberrations, camera doesn't perf...

God dang YT keeps making my videos darker than the original, so most scenes don't really have the same color and brightness as when I was rendering it. I'm going to assume you're rendering with sony vegas: try adding a "sony levels" fx and set the preset to "computer RGB to studio RG...
