Saturn and the Beehive widefield


Recommended Posts

Here's one of my fav views of the evening sky of late Saturn and the Beehive Cluster, taken with a 70-300 sigma lens and Canon 300D DSLR.

18 Frames of 30 secs stacked in Registax 3 and then processed a little in Photoshop.

Great photo.

A few questions so I can have a go, as I'm still waiting to try my new E500 & sigma 110-400 lens.

1, Guided or unguided.

2, Iso setting

3, Focal length used

4, Any filter, (lpr ect)

5, Any lights nearby. (all mine so far have orange skyglow, but I can get rid of most adjusting levels)

That it for now

To answer your Questions,
