A quick question, Is it worth?


Recommended Posts

Hiya I have a un-modified DSLR camera,  Canon 70D on a 102mm APO refractor on a AVX mount with all bits n pieces. 

Is it worth attempting in your opinion to take images of the wizard nebula or the Elephants trunk nebula? I also attached to camera a LP filter

 

Cheers

Thanks Olly, I have tried Sadr, Horsehead, Lagoon, Rosetta, Trifid. Are some of these objects HA? If so then my camera is picking this up. So should i be ok with the Wizard and he elephant?

Cheers

The Horsehead, Lagoon and Rosette are all Ha dominated.

I think you might struggle with the Wizard on an unmodified DSLR, as it's probably the faintest of those mentioned. The elephant's trunk may be worth a go - I think it's reasonably bright around the "top" edge.
