Description

M16 Eagle Nebula from my home (with a lot of light pollution). It was at Alt 25-30°, in a bad evening :) I tried to take it with shots of 180 sec of exposure, with IDAS filter. I like the result, good Ha signal :) Canon 450D with Tecnosky 80/480 with 0,8x reducer.

M16 Nebulosa Aquila da casa mia a Germignaga. Era a circa 25-30 gradi di altezza, in una serata serata pessima in quanto a trasparenza. Ho provato a riprenderla comunque, ma più di 180 secondi non riuscivo a esporre perchè le foto risultavano troppo chiare (nonostante il filtro IDAS). Il risultato mi soddisfa. Canon 450D con Tecnosky 80/480 e spianatore 0,8x :)
