IC 1396 Revisited


I last imaged this target in Cepheus during May 2018 using a Samyang 135 mm lens and on the 12th May this year I re-imaged the region but this time with a Canon 85mm f/1.8 lens on my CG-5 mount. In all x24 five minute unguided exposures were taken at f/1.8 with my modified Canon 700D DSLR with clip-in Astronomik 12nm Ha filter. The light exposures were taken at ISO 400. The resulting frames were subsequently stacked in Deep Sky Stacker together with x18 temperature matched dark frames, x50 flat frames and a library master bias frame. The resulting image was processed in StarTools.

I am pleased with the amount of nebulosity and dark dust lanes in the image compared to my previous imaging attempt last year which I put down to a better use of StarTools.
