Orion

Barnard's Loop, the Christmas Tree Nebula (less seasonally known as NGC2024), the Horsehead Nebula and of course the Orion Nebula (M42) are all visible.

This is the first time I've tried the Deep Sky Filter on this lens. There is some distortion of the stars around the perimeter of the photo, but I've cropped the worst of it out.

Canon EOS 20D ,Pentacon auto 50mm f/1.8
Camera 'piggybacked' on a Celestron C8 telescope. 4 minute exposure at f2.8, ISO 800. Lumicon Deep Sky Filter fitted to lens. full exif

other sizes: small medium original
