Description

Here is the Spaghetti Nebula SH2-240 in HOO, done in unfiltered 6D canon.

Nebula which is very dim so it took about 23 hours of exposures spread over 1 month, in 5 nights, I wanted to double the exposure time but given the weather and the time it would still take, I prefer m stop there and move on to new things.

I'm still very happy with the result knowing that I'm doing this on the go and without computer help to image everything is artisanal in the shooting.

Thanks again to my friend Philippe Bernhard who again helped me greatly with the treatment.
