Description

Another wide field shot, this time of the Double Cluster, and Heart and Soul Nebulas. The nebulas are weak because I was waaay too short on exposure, 30 secs, and I only have 31 subs for a total of 15 minutes. It was more proof of concept for mounting the Canon camera on the side of the ACF 10" on the Meade LX850. The experiment went well and I'll be adding time and images to get better shots. For now, here's as good as I could get it.
