Images by Steve Cooke

These images were mainly taken from Steve's garden in Brixton, South Devon using a Skywatcher 200P and a modified Cannon 1000D at prime focus.  Many have been stacked in Deep Sky Stacker (DSS), processed in either DSS or GIMP and filtered in Noiseware.  They are generally 20-60 RAW exposures of 30-60 seconds.

M17, M13 and the drawings of the Veil nebula and M71 were through a 500mm reflector at the COAA in Portugal.
