In April 2021 I posted here a new version of a capture made in July, 2020. Well, I was not entirely happy.
Then, I decided to do a new version. This means that the picture I’m posting today is at least the 3rd version of the same data. Ok, ok, sorry. I won’t be stalling. Here is the new (And hopefully the last) version:
Also, I made an annotated version, with the astrometric solution. What are your thoughts?
This is the equipment I used to capture this image:
Canon T6i (750D);
Nikon Nikkor 135mm f2.8 Ai with Canon EOS adapter;
NGC 6334, the Cat’s Paw nebula is a faint emission nebula on the constellation of Scorpio.
That’s finally my last capture before I get my DSLR modified for astrophotography.
My setup for astrophotography is slowly getting the way I want!
Of course, my ideia was to shot an emission nebula hard to capture with a stock camera. If everything ends right, soon I’ll post a version of this same target, with some quite similar exposure, but with an astromoded Canon T6i. Wish me luck!
Well… the Cat’s Paw nebula is a hard target for Bortle 6 skies and a stock DSLR. Almost 3 hours of exposure and I hardly got some nebulosity. I hope it will change soon, as soon my camera come back and my Optolong L-Pro arrive.
