Markarian's Chain Region


On the evening/early morning of the 18th/19th April 2018 I took my first exposures of this galaxy-rich area of the sky. I was experimenting with my CG-5 Go-To mount and Canon 700D modified DSLR with Astronomik 12nm Ha filter and Samyang 135mm lens. Due to constraints on imaging direction I was able to only take a short number of light frames but was interested to see the results of such a wide field imaging session regardless.

The image was composed from x14 three minute exposures at f/2, ISO 400 together with x8 dark frames and x50 flat and bias frames. Stacking was carried out using Deep Sky Stacker and the resulting image processed with StarTools.
