Description

So, that's finally my last capture before I get my DSLR modified for astrophotography.

Of course, my ideia is to shot an emission nebula hard to capture with a stock camera.

If everything ends right, soon I'll post a version of this same target, with some quite similar exposure, but with an astromoded Canon T6i.

Wish me luck!

Well... what a hard target for a Bortle 6 skies and a stock DSLR. Almost 3 hours of exposure and I hardly got some nebulosity. I hope it will change soon, as soon my camera come back and my Optolong L-Pro arrive.
