Description

As every astrophotographer knows IFN (Integrated flux nebula) is a very challenging object even with high lever instruments and under dark skies.

Here my study of feasibility with an affordable setup:
Sky Watcher Star Adventurer
Modified Canon 350D
A 40 years old Leitz Elmarit - R objective

My goal was to understand if this target was reachable.
The result is quite encouraging

Come ogni astrofotografo sa la IFN (Integrated flux Nebula) è un oggetto molto impegnativo, anche con strumenti di alto livello e sotto cieli bui.

Ecco il mio studio di fattibilità con un setup relativamente economico:
Sky Watcher Star Adventurer
Canon 350D modificata
un teleobiettivo Leitz Elmarit - R vecchio di 40 anni

Il mio obiettivo era quello di capire se questo ogggetto fosse raggiungibile.
Il risultato è molto incoraggiante
