Description

Canon 200mm F/2.8 EF IS USM ll +Atik460ex (mono).
L frames were taken with an aperture-reducing mask which stops down the lens to F/4.0. 5min x 26, 1min x 15
R, G, and B frames were taken with the lens wide open (F/2.8), 2 min x 30 per channel. A fair amount of processing was needed for the B channel because this lens has rather severe chromatic aberration at shorter wavelengths.
