I live under fairly light polluted skies. I don't get a chance to get to dark skies often enough for my tastes between what I call the WWF factor (Work, Weather, Family).
My main set up is a Losmandy G-11, Pentax K-1 and a variety of lenses and telescopes. I recently picked up a Whitecat 51, and while I love it, it's useless in my backyard. I've got an OIII filter and I decided to see how it would work with the K-1 and Whitecat.
Below are Mono versions (about 20 min total each) since the OIII filter on a DSLR gives a weird green color that I can't reconvert to normal coloration.
I shot the Veil Nebula and it's the first time I was able to capture the whole thing. I obviously need more time on the Veil, but so far I'm impressed with the combination of the Whitecat and K-1.
I've got an Optolong L-Enhance filter on it's way to me. this looks like it might be the solution to my issues.
