About this image

Shot with the Astro modified EOS 600d attached to the 8" scope.

This is my first play with the new camera, the modifications really make a huge difference in the nebulosity and detail of the nebula. Cant wait for more clear nights! 

15 x 50 second exposures at 3200iso taken with Backyard EOS, Best 90% stacked in DSS and tweeked in Photoshop & Lightroom
