Ha Image by 5D Mark II

This great image was sent by Charles Banville, Canada.

Image data

  • Date: December 8, 2011
  • Objects: North America Nebula and Pelican Nebula
  • Location: Dominion Astrophysical Observatory, Victoria, BC
  • Hutech products used: Hutech modified Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Borg 77EDII, f/4.3, with Baader H-Alpha filter
  • Photographer: Charles Banville (http://rascvic.zenfolio.com/p1064835983)
  • Exposure info: 31 light frames of 300 seconds, ISO 1600.  Light frames were calibrated with dark and flat frames in ImagesPlus.

This astrograph has the built-in filter box, which allows to set and swap various filters without disassembling the system. If you use par-focal filters, you don’t have to re-focus each time. This function should be very useful for one-shot color cameras when Ha frames and regular RGB frames are taken separately.  Thanks for sending the image, Charles. Keep enjoying astrophotography with BORG!
