Version B is starter point :(

New work with Canon Modded. It is M78 and SH 2-276 Barnard's loop (a little bit portion :D ). I had taken 60x300 sec, but after analisys i have integrated only 30x300. The result of stack is visible here (Version B). Bad gradient caused by light pollution and some reflections. I tried to process this image as better of my possibility, i hope you like it :) Tecnosky 80/480 with 0,8x reducer and IDAS filter. Canon 450D


Nuovo lavoro con camera modificata. Si tratta di M78 e una porzione dell'anello di Barnard in Orione. Ho effettuato 60x300 scatti, ma ne ho mantenuti solamente 30. Il risultato è visibile nella versione B. C'è un sacco di gradiente e anche qualche riflesso. Ho cercato di elaborarla al meglio, spero possa essere di vostro gradimento :) Tecnosky 80/480 con spianatore/riduttore 0,8x. Canon 450D.
