Below The Crescent Nebula


On Saturday night (17.11.2018) I was able to image part of Cygnus below The Crescent Nebula revealing both billows of glowing hydrogen gas and dark dust lanes. I used my modified Canon 700D DSLR, Astronomik 12nm Ha filter, Samyang 135mm f/2.0 lens and CG-5 mount to take x24 five minute exposures (ISO 400, f/2) of the region which were stacked in Deep Sky Stacker with x24 temperature matched dark frames and master flat and bias frames from my library. The image was subsequently processed using StarTools.
