LBN 317 in Cygnus

Here’s a vintage image, dating back to July 2015 when I still used to image almost exclusively with DSLRs. It’s LBN 317, a medium-intensity H-alpha nebula located northwest of Deneb.

Processing this image was quite challenging, as it’s plagued by strong halos around the brightest stars caused by a “full-spectrum” Canon 450D DLSR having been used for acquisition. Anyway I think old raw frames sometimes can produce pleasing results!

This picture is a composite of 28 10-minute frames at 800 ISO through an 8” GSO RC with an Astro-Physics 0.67x reducer. 

Enjoy and Merry Xmas everyone!
