I found a file from September 20th last year I hadn't processed. It's the region around the star Sadr in Cygnus with the Crescent nebula. Taken in Hydrogen Alpha 41 x 5 min exposures (3hrs 25.mins) Samyang 135mm @f2.4 Atik One-6 camera, Baader 7nm HA filter. Pretty much as wide a field as I can get. #atikcameras #samyang135

Nice image.

It is a huge region with lots going on.

Thanks Mike. I've just looked at your link, great set of widefield images. How do you find the 5nm Astrodon compared to the Baaders

Hi, not used Baader filters so hard to say but the Astrodon 5nm works very well at f/2.
There is some vignetting but I could live with that, at least I could image after the LP
got really bad here.

Thanks for looking at mine, not done any for a while, got back into an old hobby that
takes most of my time now.

ok cheers. I'm quite happy with the Baader, but you always wonder what the improvement would be. I have another hobby which has to share the time and Money too. Pretty easy at the moment with the rather rubbish weather we've been having

I think your Baader one is doing really well, it's nice to have the narrower filters but it's not the end of the world if you don't have them.

I got lucky mine was quite cheap, got it with a set of Astrodon LRGB filters from another member.

thanks Lee, quite happy with the filter and yes a good find when you can't do any imaging

That came out great! One of the better images i've seen from that lens to be honest! A lot of times they seem over sharp or too softened to reduce stars, this shows the nebulosity, dust and stars great
