20 min exposure (4x5') on the zeta Orionis area with a Canon 6D NOT MODIFIED, @1600ISO. Just for fun. SQM 21,2, Bortle 3-4. Boy, I love my Baker! :-) Please note that there is a parasite reflex just south of the "Horse" because the Baker has NO coating on the front plate.

20 minuti di posa (4x5') sulla zona di zeta Orionis con una Canon 6D NON MODIFICATA, a 1600 ISO. Solo per divertimento. Quanto mi piace la mia Baker! :-) Notare il riflesso dovuto all'assenza di trattamento sulla lastra.
