Happy New Year!!

I just thought I would post some photos of NGC 1499 I took last night. I recently purchased a Nikon 100mm E series f2.8 lens for widefield, and so far it works great. I also got a Lumicon Night Sky H-Alpha filter, and it also did its job quite nicely. This exposure is 6 minutes at f2.8 on Tech Pan hypered 72 hrs. at 112 degrees F, preceded by 24 hrs. in a vacuum. I developed the film right after taking the shots, 10 minutes in D-19 as usual.
