I heard that was possible to make astrophotography in town. I did not believe in it, nevertheless.
Here is a photo of M42 realized on January 17th, 2015 from the balcony of my flat in Nice (Nizza) with my Canon 550D not modified installed bottom my 80ED and with a series of filter. The images treatment is assured by IRIS and PHOTOSHOP CS-5.5.

On raconte qu’il est possible de faire de l’astrophotographie en ville. Je n’y croyais pas beaucoup et pourtant.
Voici une photo de M42 réalisée le 17 janvier 2015 depuis la terrasse de mon appartement à Nice avec mon Canon 550D non modifié installé au foyer de ma lunette 80ED et d’une série de filtre. Le traitement des images est assuré par IRIS et PHOTOSHOP CS-5.5.
