That's what you call wide field.  Beautiful. Everyone - open the full resolution link, the stars really pop.

Honestly I don't know if there is a definition how wide a wide field is. I hope the title is not misleading and everyone expects a 110° FOV :-)

 

Thank you all for your likes. Working on the next one right now. Stay tuned.

Hi Elf - 

 

I am working on this now with my FSQ but I am very keen to know the exact set up you used for this - DLSR?

Simon,

 

the setup is an EQ6-R, the Askar FMA180 and two DSLRs. For the color data an unmodded Canon T7i taking 5 min sub at ISO 200 and for Ha a mono modded T3i and a Baader 7nm Ha filter taking 15min subs at ISO 800. Guiding by the TSL50D 50mm f=180mm guide scope and the lacerta M-Gen II stand alone auto guider. Processing in PI.

There are probably only a hand full of mono DSLRs out there. With a regular DSLR the image looks like this:

My estimated Bortle is 4. If you drive to Dartmoor, Devon you should get similar results.
