Vaonis Vespera Pro - Photo Gallery (Messier Catalog)

Introduction | Photos (Messier Catalog) | Links

On the gallery pages, I present my so far "best" photos taken with my Vaonis Vespera Pro (at the moment, most of the time all of them...). This page shows DSO that are included in the Messier Catalog.

Gallery pages: Photo Gallery (My Nicest Photos) - Photo Gallery (Messier Catalog) - Photo Gallery (NGC and More...) - Photo Gallery (Multiple DSO)

 

Introduction

On this page I would like to present my "best" photos of Messier objects taken with my Vaonis Vespera Pro. As hopefully new celestial objects and maybe better photos of the objects will be added in the future, this page will be a "work in progress".

Note: The frames were exposed with 10 seconds unless noted otherwise.
