A Red Admiral?


Recommended Posts

The Butterfly Nebula IC 1318

190mm focal length (Sigma zoom lens)

umodded 1000d with CLS filter

5 x 4mins @ F5 ISO 800

4 x darks

Manually guided with my toy refractor (national geographic)

Just as a matter of interest, where does this forum draw the line between deep sky and widefield? IE is this in the wrong place? Subjective I know

Cheers guys.

I have been pleasantly surprised by how much red emission is picked up by the unmodded camera, adding a decent light pollution filter made all the difference, before I just couldn't do long enough exposures. I think the mod will be put on the back burner for the moment...
