First Light with a new T5i

Question

The day before I left for the Texas Star Party I got a new T5i.  At the star party I piggybacked the camera onto my telescope to shoot the Milky Way in Sagittarius & Scorpius.

 

The lens is a stock Canon 18-135mm.  There is some noticeable coma if you zoom way in on the stars around the edges.  Next time I will stop the lens down more to see if that helps.

 

I have two versions one with annotations that outline the stars in the constellations and label the Messier objects and the other without the annotations.

 

not annotated - http://flic.kr/p/nS9Jrk

annotated - http://flic.kr/p/nS9HL2

 

The images are a stack of 12 5-minute exposures captured with BYE at ISO 800.

Okay, now I'm really jealous of your clear skies.

 

Those are really nice Rick. 

 

The more I grow into this hobby the more I really like and enjoy wide shots.  These are no exception. A+++ in my book.

Thanks for all who have looked at, and commented on, my latest images.

In preparation for Flickr no longer allowing me to log on with my Google+ logon, I have migrated all my publicly posted images to Astrobin.  Here are the new links to the wide-field images of the Milky Way in Sagittarius and Scorpius:
