M35 and Monkey


Recommended Posts

Another from he other night with the modded 1000d and 50mm f1.8. This time set at F4 to control the star shapes a bit more. Only 20 minutes of 2 minute 800 iso subs this as I was flagging by this time. No calibration, stacked in I+ and messed around with in PS7. Severely cropped.


No calibration cos I am just getting used to the lens. I reckon my next outing will have to be with calibration, theres a lot cropped off here due to vignetting, M36 and 37 to name but 2 have had to be cropped off.


Theres a few more bits of nebula in there, its amazing how much there is splatted around the skies in this region :D

Its a lovely lens Andy, just remember to stop it down a bit to control the stars. Its a shame because its capable of f1.8 but stars are really weird shapes at that. If there aren't any bright stars in the field you may get away with F3.2-5. It also has a lot of vignetting but when I get calibrating that's not difficult to get rid of

Read up about on a photography site, it had several shots of a landscape and the edges where blurred until it was stopped down to f3.5.

Got a 70-200mm L series on its way too.
