tried Series 1 (Blue Mountains)

Shot NGC 6946 (a galaxy) piggyback with the old zoom lens for fun! Also caught NGC 6939 (an open cluster). East is up; north is right. Used Ian W's Losmandy bracket on the Tele Vue 101 dovetail.


Canon 40D, Vivitar Series 1 at 200mm, ISO 1000, 60 seconds, f/4.0, RAW. Stacked in DSS. Minor processing in Photoshop.

Coma at the edges. Vignetting in the corners. Intense colours. The processing result is a little blue for my liking.
