Description

Wow! How much h-alpha!!!

I really didn't expect for that. This region is very rich on h-alpha showing an amazing and beautiful plate with various nebulae.

The setup for this work was so simple, only a Canon objective (50mm F1. and a Canon 450D mod. over an HEQ5 mount.

I hope you enjoy it!
