Description

A few days in south of France, with a dark sky allowing to see naked eyes stars of about the 6.3 mag. I could start this deep field on the Veil nebula. Next I added longer poses (by 2/3 of a stop, friends photographers) to the 41 here published. Weather has been playing with my enthusiasm : too much wind and no way to protect my scope from it...
Most relevant details seem to me in this last E VERSION. Until some Ha comes ;-)
B & C VERSION : of course you can zoom in, but I wanted to figure this crop version as it shows quite impressive amount of details (vs what I expected)
Data :
> 41 x 135 sec @ 6400 iso. I did try subs at 1600 & 3200 but after stacking more than 40 subs, I really don't see much difference.
D & E VERSION :
I added 21 x 225 sec @ 6400 iso in a situation with overall better seeing but more humidity...
F VERSION : the above + 5 x 600'' ha mixed 20% on relevant parts.
Enjoy
