***** ENG - Easy night "one night one shot" near the Promiod Observatory with my good friend Emmanuele. 22x1200s exposure on the NGC2264 area with My Nikkor300 f/2,8 and SBIG11000 with 7 nm Halfa Baader filter. Very cold night! I'm grateful to the autoguider! ^_^

***** ITA - Tranquilla uscita "una notte, una foto" presso l'osservatorio di Promiod con l'amico Emmanuele. 22x1200s pose sull'area di NGC2264 col tele Nikon APO 300 f/2,8 e SBIG11000 in Halfa. Faceva un freddo pazzesco. Il CCD a -40 consumanva niente, ma non ho una libreria di dark più freddi! ^_^ Evviva l'autoguida...
