BORG 200 mm F.L. is a really fun scope

As mentioned here several times, 200 mm focal length with full frame sensor is really fun to compose, and look at the picture result and a star atlas side by side. I can learn more about each object’s location. Here is one of last weekend’s results.rosetteBORG 55FL F3.6 + IDAS LPS-V4-52 + Cooled 6D, 16 x 5′ at ISO 1000. The flat only applied.

I’m still struggling for the flat during post processing. I don’t have such difficulty through HEUIBII filter at all. When LPS-V4 filter is used, probably the color balance between flat and light frame does’t match. I guess that’s reason. I will consider better way.

Anyway, following is what I’m enjoying these days. There are various my unknown objects in a frame. It’s fun to find them out while looking at my picture and the map side-by-side. Bluish one was not expected or paid attention at all. NGC 2245? or 2247? At least I’m glad to have included Sh2-282 in a same frame.

I feel 200 mm + full frame is the best combination to learn the details of night sky. Probably shorter F.L. is too wide while longer is too narrow to see each location.
