I managed to get the dual mounting set-up balanced and cables to the cameras yesterday so when it cleared briefly last night I grabbed a few subs of (part) ngc2237 or Rosette neb.


 


Did it mainly to see what the image quality was like in the corners of a full frame chip (small amount of coma) and added a crop to the image to simulate an APS-C size chip (Nikon DX) although the Canon would be much the same.

Looks great to me Francis. Nice one. Oh and I looked at your guitars btw-absolute things of beauty, you're a very skilled man indeed. If I win the lottery I will most certainly be commissioning you to make me one covered in mother of pearl :) An acoustic version of the PRS Dragon perhaps :)

Many thanks Ade,

 

Many years ago I took an apprenticeship in wood-machining before changing to applied photography. Now I get the chance to do both with building guitars and the astro photog.
