NGC 281 - the "Pac-Man" Nebula


Date:              October 21, 2008

Location:        Seven Sisters Observatory - Manchester MI   

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

Conditions:     Very nice but cold!

Film:               None!  DSLR @ ISO 800    

Exposure:       12 X 600 seconds with 3 X 600 seconds dark frames

Comments:     This is about a 70% crop of the frame.  I have wanted to shoot the pac-man for a while and I finally took the opportunity.  The Orion Starshoot Autoguider worked flawlessly.
