Last night, I tried my hand at the Rosette Nebula. Instead of the usual Nikon D5200 I had put on the Nikon D800 this time. The nebula has a large extension and with the crop camera the angle of view might have been too small. Of the 75 lights originally made, only 44 were ultimately […]

NGC 7023 – Iris nebula
Actually I wanted to photograph the Rosette Nebula last night. But the nebula is a bit too big for the D5200 crop camera.

I hadn’t put the ND filters on this morning. The lateral incidence of light would have strongly affected the images. Backlight shots in JPG […]
