Description

***** ENG: My longest exposure to date: two nights to take this image. First night 4hrs of color with an unmod Canon 6D, then 3:40h Halfa with SBIG11000. The following night, 8h of luminance with the same CCD. Data "fusion" by Edoardo Radice. Slightly "retouched" following my personal taste after Edoardo's work (roughly another 3h...).

SQM 21,3 - Bortle 3

***** ITA: La mia esposizione più lunga, almeno sinora. Due notti tutte dedicate alla bella NGC2403. Prima notte 4 ore di colore con Canon 6D non modificata, poi cambio camera e 3:40h di Ha con SBIG11000. La notte dopo 8 ore di luminanza sempre con la SBIG. La difficile elaborazione è costata circa 3 ore al bravissimo Edoardo Radice. Io l'ho leggermente "contrastata", secondo il mio gusto.
