Description

VERSION B single shots on the meridian :)
First try with 3 panel mosaic :) Those are M16, M17 and M24 from my home. It was at Alt 25-30°, in three bad evening for light pollution :( I tried to take it with shots of 180 sec of exposure, with IDAS filter. Canon 450D with Tecnosky 80/480 with 0,8x reducer.

VERSIONE B scatti singoli al passaggio sul meridiano :)
Primo mosaico serio :) Si tratta di 3 pannelli che comprendono rispettivamente M16, M17 ed M24. L'altezza non era ottimale, intorno ai 20-30° di altezza, e con molta foschia e inquinamento luminoso :( Ho provato a riprendere comunque, ma più di 180 secondi non riuscivo a esporre perchè le foto risultavano troppo chiare (nonostante il filtro IDAS). Canon 450D con Tecnosky 80/480 e spianatore 0,8x :)
