Looking rather good imo, you captured some nice colors indeed. Also got some different colors in the stars, so i believe your lens has a good color
rendition, always a good thing.
Might try Andromeda one of these days
Pacman isn't too hard to find if you know Cassiopeia, but it's difficult to spot in single images, very faint and comes out after multiple stacks.
Just aim your lens in the middle of Cassiopeia and you should capture it, from there on you can adjust.
I've been aiming the camera at The California Nebula, also easy to locate but difficult to capture. I believe it's also has to do with the lens. Not
to happy with the astro results of this lens(nikkor 80-200/2.8) Lot of vignetting even with the flats added, corners are looking pretty bad and awful
blue halos around bright stars.
Looking for other options, maybe the Samyang 135mm, I've seen some good results with it.
Camera is now aimed at the Cygnus northern cross. Gonna check out the results and maybe do some more editing if all went well.
I just finished yesterdays edit of the California nebula.
Took one at 145mm and another with 50mm lens
and the wider field of the nebula with the Pleiades
Personally I prefer the first version/third picture
