Now that's the way the Veil is meant to be seen! B&W looks so much better than color on that object. Stunning image and great processing.

I love the very fine detail that one never really sees to the top and bottom of the arc!

Michael,

Really amazing job.  Two quick questions, I was poking around your website and love the TOA-150 setup.  What is the Tak scope you're using as a guidescope?

 

Also, I noticed there was a huge giant white box on the end of your TOA-150 in one of the photos on this page:  https://www.michaelastro.com/nature    Is that a white cooler or something to that effect that is covering your Canon 6D?  

 

Also, is your Canon 6D modified or used any filters?

Hi,

Thank you :)

The tak guidescope is Takahashi FC-76DS Fluorite APO Refractor

The big box is for the cover for the canon 6d, the canon is attached to an aluminum that is cooling the camera all night -15 below 0!

The canon is modified and the filter is 3nm astronomic h alpha.

The aluminum cover is absolutely fantastic!  Is that something I can purchase somewhere or did you make it custom?

Sorry, The cooler is costume made. It's not cover, its a plate attached below the camera. from the Aluminum plate there is a a long flexible tube that transfer the cooling gas...  it can go to -40c below 0.
