Heart Nebula IC1805


Date:              November 3, 2007

Location:        Seven Sisters Observatory - Manchester MI   

Equipment:    Megrez 90 APO, FFIII, Canon 10D Modified 

Conditions:     Fair

Film:               None!  DSLR @ ISO 800    

Exposure:       18 X 300 seconds with 5 X 300 seconds dark frames

Comments:     This is a rather poor shot of a very dim object.  I have been trying to process the subframes for several months.  I had to really stretch the image to get anything and I can only conclude that I need to take at least double the exposure to get a satisfactory shot.  I will probably let this one rest for a "while" and try to restack in the future as my processing skills (hopefully) increase.
