  1. Located near the top of the Teapot in Sagittarius, Messier 22 is a huge globular that is big enough to be prominent in wide-field images. Compare its size to the tiny M-28 to the lower right of the frame. Messier 22 is plainly visible to the unaided eye, even when low on the horizon on a clear dark night. This view was captured by an antique(1975) 300mm f/4 Asahi Pentax SMC Takumar lens attached to a Pentax Spotmatic II (1973 era) exposing for only 15 minutes @ f/4 using Kodak ED200 slide film. To be sure, star images are not perfect as there was no ED glass when this lens was made, but nice nonetheless. Thanks for looking. Jim
  2. For your consideration, the constellation Orion taken on a dark night in January. I was fortunate enough to be able to execute a fine exposure revealing not only the faint Ha nebulae throughout the region, but also the blue nebulae that exists in the western portions, including the well known Witch Head nebulae NW of Rigel. Pentax 67 165mm @ f/4.8 75 minutes exposure Kodak E200 - Normal E-6 Processing. Scanned on Epson V600 imported into PS and edited and cropped slightly. Compare to my digital rendition of the same area, but somewhat wider view: http://stargazerslou...o-panel-mosaic/ I like them both and each method provides a different rendition, but my own personal aesthetics prefer this film version, which is a dying art practiced by the few with the commitment to the craft and access to dark skies. I hope to keep at it as long as I am able. Thank you for looking. Orion by Nightfly Photography, on Flickr
