    Great capture LWW! :thumbup:


    We've been watching this in Cygnus (Northern Cross) and the "Coathanger Nebula" for the past month now and I'm still waiting for my 2 films to come back from processing! (Long story not yet concluded!:( )

    Have you managed to capture this without the H-Alpha filter and with any colour?

    This was done about 10 yrs back. I'm just now digitizing my stuff.

    If I remember right that was a 30 and maybe even a 60 minute eq mot clock drive exposure on 3200 spd Kodak.

    It doesn't look like that through the viewfinder. Very faint.

    I haven't no.

    I also haven't done a ton of astrophotography.

    I have tried Fuji 1600 color but it gets very grainy. 3200 BW seems to work better for me. Partly I'm sure because I develop it myself.

    These type of pictures fascinate me to no end, I am surprised the nebula came out so large with a 300mm lens. Glad you posted this capture. Good job
