Cygnus Widefield


Andrew Gray


Starlight Express 649 mono with Baader filters, on a Canon 28-70 F2.8 L lens at about 28mm. Mounted on an NEQ6. 3 min images stacked in DSS and combined in Photoshop.

A widefield narrowband image of the cygnus region. I finally got to grips with attaching an SLR lens to an astro ccd and am pleased with the results. 70min of Ha, 40 min of Oiii and a synthesised green channel. I am planning to do a lot more of this over the winter
