Another shot from my last astrocamp of August this year, the California Nebula (part of it, is really huge!).
This time is a straight RGB + Ha. Data comes mainly from August 12 and consist of 40:40:40 min RGB. I've added about 60 min of H-alpha data from the last year astrocamp taken from the same place with the same setup. I've managed also to add extra 30:30:30 min RGB data taken some years ago with another telescope and camera. At the end these are the acquisition data:
RGB+Ha (40:40:40:60) taken with a Takahashi Epsilon f3 on Astrophysics Match1 GTO mount, QSI 683WSG8 ccd, Astrodon gen2 filters guided via a Starlight Xpress Lodestar. More 30:30:30: min RGB with a Vixen RSS200 f4 on a Losmandy G11 mount with a SBIG STL 6303 and Astrodon filters.
Thanks for stopping by!
