Widefield milky way and the summer triangle

Recommended Posts

The home galaxy is rising a couple of hours before dawn these days. And that gave me an opportunity to shoot at it. Well actually I left the CW of my mount at home. So what's better than simply sticking camera directly on the mount to get long widefield shots with a dark sky? I shot the Summer Triangle and Rho Oph. Presenting the Summer Triangle.

Lights: 8 x 180s + 6 x 60s  @ Iso 800

Flats, Bias.

Taken with Canon 1100D unmodded and 18 mm f/3.5 lens mounted on HEQ5 Pro.

Edit: Oops..where's the image? Now its here...

Lovely wide field. Upside down from the way we usually see it.

Thanks for sharing

Thanks. Possibly because it is rising? I am used to seeing the summer triangle set in the evening around September.

Yes, of course. I forgot that you mentioned imaging before dawn.
