Description

Questa immagine è stata ripresa in due distinte serate (20 e 27 dicembre 2011) con Canon EOS 550d modificata e rifrattore APO 80 mm. f/7. Nella prima serata ho ripreso 50 frame di 60 secondi, 97 dark e 97 bias a 1600ISO, mentre nella seconda 50 frame di 85 secondi, 21 dark e 21 bias. Le due serie sono state poi allineate e combinate mediante Maxim DL 5, quindi trasformate da fits a tiff mediante FITS Liberator 3.0 ed infine elaborate con Photoshop CS3 in collaborazione con Piero Lavoratti.

This image was taken in two distinct nights (december 20th and 27th 2011) by my modded Canon EOS 550d + APO refractor 80 mm. f/7. On the first night I took 50 light frames of 60 seconds @1600 ISO, 97 dark frames and 97 bias frames. On the second night I took 50 light frames of 85 seconds @1600 ISO, 21 dark frames and 21 bias frames. The two series of files was stacked by Maxim DL, Fits Liberator 3.0 and Photoshop CS3. Thanks to my friend Piero Lavoratti for its support.
