This image of IC 59 and 63 was taken with a modded Canon 6D at ISO 400 stacking 7 frames of 3 minutes each. I used my 1986 Meade DS 16 inch reflector still with the synchronous motor drive. Guiding was manually using a built in off axis guider with a variable frequency motor control - just like in the days past.
I recall using this scope with cooled film in a cold camera as well as a regular OM 1 camera with gas hypered film. Back then this was the ultimate light bucket !
