NGC 1499


Date:              October 3, 2008

Location:        Seven Sisters Observatory - Manchester MI   

Equipment:    Zenithstar 66SD, FFIII, Canon 10D Modified 

Conditions:    good - ground fog 

Film:               None!  DSLR @ ISO 800    

Exposure:       8 X 900 seconds with 3 X 900 seconds dark frames

Comments:     A little star trailing - I found some looseness in the focus mechanism on my scope.  I will need to re-shoot this if we stay clear in the next dark moon cycle.  I do like the faint wisps surrounding the nebula.
