Description

A great classic of the sky! The Perseus double cluster taken from my home in Germignaga with Tecnosky 80/480, Canon 450D and 0,8x reducer. 28x300 sec at ISO 800. This DSO is very easy to acquire and process, but it's always nice to see :) I decided to keep the FOV in "vertical" to give more deep to the photo:) I hope you enjoy it:)

Un grande classico del cielo! Doppio ammasso del Perseo ripreso da casa a Germignaga con Tecnosky 80/480, Canon 450D e riduttore 0,8x. Sono 28x300 sec a 800 ISO. Oggetto molto facile da riprendere e anche da elaborare, ma è sempre bello da vedere :) Ho deciso di mantenere l'inquadratura in "verticale" per dare maggiore spazio alla foto :) Spero sia di vostro gradimento :)
