Cygnus - Down in one

Recommended Posts

Whilst working on some OIII for the crescent, I decided to give the 1000d and nifty fifty a rare run-out to catch a few photons.

Quite a lot going on in this one really, I think I got lucky with the framing since it wasnt quite aligned with the 130.

1000d, NEQ6, 50mm f1.8 (stopped to f3.5)

18x600 (L)

And only recently was I thinking about mounting the DSLR with nifty fifty atop the scope for a bit of widefield... You have just given me the proof that it is a very good idea. Splendid image and double the photon gathering power, got to be good. Look forward to seeing the crescent project too.
