M1 and M42 Vixen VC200L at F6.4 Canon Eos20d

Recommended Posts

Well I got a Vixen Focal reducer from the states and last night was the first time I had a chance to try it.

I have a 55mm to 48mm step down reducer coming and that should allow me to use 2 inch filters.

Light pollution seems to limit the subs to 2 mins with no filter.

Vixen VC200L and FR Self modded Canon EOS20D 10 subs of 2 mins ISO800 guided with WOZS66 and DSI pro.

EQ6 pro running EQMOD.

I have some other images, but have not processed them yet.

John

Hi John, I know all too well what you mean about LP and the canon camera I use a 350d thats unmodded and it can be a pain. I had a quick fiddle with your M1 and managed to get the LP down a bit.

Good stuff John. Nice to see what the Vixen can do, certainly is a flat field
