from m16 to m17

Recommended Posts

Hello Everybody

In the end of juni, I enjoyed a weekend in the Vosges to make a picture of the couple m16 - m17.

The image is made at 1000m above, in a beautifull spot : "The champ du feux". I used the fsq106 and stl11k and make a exposure time of 4h40.

You can see the picture in this link in :

and the full : http://www.astropixel.org/images/m16_2008-06-28_4000.jpg

Have a nice day and perhaps a clear sky (here in belgium I'm forget it)

Location is everything :-) That is one amazing picture. Sorry for asking a probably obvious question; it's stacked right, not a single shot? How long were the subs?

That is an outstanding capture Seb with so much going on, I love the structure of M16. Did you manage to capture any colour data ?

Regards

Kevin

Hello

Thanks for your interest to this picture.

The shoot was take the 28 and 30 juni 2008. I think that use a big time in the exposure of a single shot is better for the density of the nebula. But of course it's necessary to have good condition to make it (no plane, no temperature variation, good tracking, ...).

I thinks to make it in color, but the next year, because this object is low now, and the mounth of july and augustus was not terrible (and, finally, I'm busy to work on a new panel :) )

Clear sky
