Saturn Nebula NGC-7009

Recommended Posts

Here's an example of a bright, but small nebula that can be a nice practice target for everyone. I took this last summer with my LX-90 @f6.3 and Canon XT. It's in a good positon for imaging now and at a reasonable time.

Good Luck

Doug

Lovely shot, and not too faint at mag 8.

I'll def add that to my to-do list to image that i'm compiling :wink:

Any idea how long the exposure was and what star that is?

Thanks guys,

Rog, this one will be little-effort for your kit and skills...Ha.

I don't remember the exposure details. But, I'm sure it was something like a dozen or so frames at ISO 800, maybe @25 sec each... Not sure of the star name either. :wink:
