Orion Widefield

Newer Older

Cought this between the clouds on 22 Nov. 2011 between 02:30 and 04:00.

Only one hours worth of data. Two panels of 3x 10 min exposures using modded Cannon 1000D, simga 70-300 lens and CG5 mount.

Not sure if the coulour is right as I think my moniter could be doing with a calaberation.

    I love seeing Bernards Loop and the whole of the constellation. It really makes it look like a hero with a cape. I think the color is good to me, in case you are still wondering. Thanks for sharing!
