Luminance – 12x600s – 120 minutes – binned 1x1
RGB – 8x300s – 40 minutes each – binned 2x2
240 minutes total exposure – 4 hours
Imaged December 26th, 2013 at the Danville Conservation Area (New Florence, Missouri) with a SBIG ST-8300M on an Astro-Tech AT90EDT at f/6.7 603mm.
I also imaged the area with a Canon T2i with an f/3.5 50mm lens using BackyardEOS 3.0.3. The result of 50x180s exposures is an image approximately 24.7 x 16.4 degrees. LBN 777 is too faint to show up. Notable objects visible include NGC 1499 (California Nebula) and M45. There are numbers dark nebula going through the center of the image.
