IC5070 - Pelican Nebula in Ha


Recommended Posts

Due to changing jobs I hadn't managed much imaging over the last couple of months, but last nights clear spell which ended early at about 2.30am and the prospect of no work today meant I could catch up on a little test run I'd had planned for some time.

I purchased an APCCDT67 telecompressor earlier in the year to use with my 6" RC, but also hoped it would be useable on my ED80 with the small chip Atik 314l+

The telecompressor brings the ED80 triplet down to a very nice 320mm f/4 nebula hoover, but the proof is always in the corners!!!

I managed 90 minutes of hydrogen alpha on the pelican and was very happy to find no distortion at the corner of the imaging field, here's the image, hope you like it!!
