Finally I got some good weather in Joinville to shoot Sagittarius. Although the moon was 47% illuminated, I’ve been able to do around 80 frames before the fog ruined the sky.
I’m pretty happy with the results. You know, Sagittarius is an “easy target”, but I mean… the framing I got here is right what I was intending.
The Lagoon Nebula ( Messier 8, NGC 6523 ) is right in the center, and makes me scream with the anxiety to put my hands on my new CEM25P, that not arrived yet. I really do want to shoot this target with longer focal length!
Well, enough with silly talking. Here is the setup:
Nikon Af-s Nikkor 50mm F/1.8g
Old low cost EQ5 (R.A. clock drive)
Here it follows:
