Description

My first attempt of The Crescent Nebula at F10 2800mm from 063015 with 22 50 second unguided subs.

I was surprised it turned out all all with such little data and a near full moon.

The Huetch Canon 6D camera is a really amazing camera and is a joy to use.

I'll contine to collect data on NGC 6888 all summer long at 2800mm and see what the final

data collection should look like. I have not seen very many images of The Crescent Nebula taken at 2800mm in Astrobin. So I'll really look forward to this as a project.

I will be going to a dark site in 2 weeks and have a go of it there and as well at The Oregon Star Party in August.
