Good morning.

In a rare clear night, a 4 hours of Ha on the heart of the Cignus. Experiment with a 200mm Nikon coupled with asi1600mm cooled at -15 and exposure of 300".

I'm quite satisfied about the deep and the details, especially the Crescent that popup from the back nebulosity.

Hoping to get the RGB soon but weather is not cooperating.

Critics for improvement are welcome!

I hope this isn't to far off topic, but how does one hook an astro camera to a terrestrial lens?  

 

Love the pic.  I love it in BW.

It's a kind of magical genetic experiment but do not spread it.........

;)

 

Joke aside, the ZWO (and other brands) has adaptors to connect Nikon/Canon lens with M threated attach.

Basically you can use the most common lens and screw them on the EFW.

You can easily google with "zwo nikon lens adapter", just as example.

BTW, in case of Nikon lens, the use of NON G type lens is recommended as these latest has not the f command.

Although in infinitesimally small amounts, space is not "empty" and your amazing shot indicates that. Superb!

Thank you all for the nice words.

It's not a fast learning curve in this hobby but I always try to get as much as I can from the few night I can dedicate to the sky, both in acquiring and processing.

Slowly. result are arriving
