New version which includes recent acquisitions. The captured images up to 2004 were taken with Kodak E200 slide film and / or Kodak TP 2415 hypersensitized with H-alpha filter, subsequent to digital with Canon EOS350 and / or modified 400D. The image reproduces all the material stacked on a composition derived from POSS-II plates to ensure an accurate and correct reference.
Many thanks to Terenzio Fusco for having made available some of his equipment and some precious images in OIII, integrated into the channel G.

A reworking of old slides captured between 1998 and 2004 with Kodak E200 and the addition of H-alpha shots obtained with Kodak TP 2015 (hypersensitized) is visible here:
