These are the photos I took at the hiking trail. You can share them on the club site.
Tuesday, Dave Spencer and I went out and took some shots.
Picture #1 is the dark nebula, Barnard’s E, in Aquila. The bright star is Tarazed. It was with a Canon 60D for 5 min at 6400 iso through a 200mm lens at f/3.5. I also got a shot of the Helix Nebula through a 70mm. It turned out pretty small.
Friday, at the Club’s Star Party, I re-took the Helix Nebula at prime focus through my GPS 11” at f/6.3, for 3 min with the 60D at 6400 iso -- Picture #2.
Picture #3 is the Witches Broom in the Veil Nebula complex in Cygnus. It was taken with the GPS 11” at f/6.3 through an UHC filter. The bright star is 52 Cygni. It needs a lot more exposure time.
