Description

This is a very weak nebula. This image is the sum of over 160 images of 3 minutes each (unguided) taken during July 2010. Scope was a Vixen ED114 with its reducer (F 4.4 Focal length), camera a modded Canon 450d and mount a Vixen GPDX. Unfortunatelly the left part of the image is slightely out of focus, and stars have an ungly green color. This is due to a little misalignment between the filter and the camera, that I have never been able to solve, and brought me to the replacement of the filter.
