Date: September 27, 2000
Location: Boon Michigan
Equipment: 4" f6 refractor, G11, Taurus Tracker, St4
Conditions: Dark and clear
Film: Kodak Ektapress PJ400
Exposure: 60 minutes. Adjusted in Photoshop
Comments: This is my first attempt at the California Nebula with anything other than piggyback equipment. The image size seems to suit the 4" f6 refractor very well. I really need to get more exposure on this one - perhaps two 90 minute exposures but I am happy for a first attempt.
