This shot of M-27 or Dumbbell Nebula was taken on 6-22-04. The moon was not quite 1st quarter and hadn't set yet( about an 1.5 hour away from setting when I took this)
This is the original scan with an Epson 3200 scanner the only thing done to the image was to crop it and down size the number of pixels.
This was the same roll as the Cat's Paw was from.
This was a 45 min exposure on Kodak E-200 film 120 format taken with :
AP 155mm telescope with field flattener.
Pentax 6X7 camera,AP 1200 mount.
Skies and seening were between 8.5 and 9.
Comments welcome
Augie
