Stellar Shot of the Week 02/08/2017
Chris Hendren took this image of the Flaming Star Nebula (IC 405) using his Stellarvue SV70T at f/4.8, Starlight Xpress SX-694 camera and Astronomik 6nm Ha, L3, and DRGB filters on his Takahashi EM-200 Temma-2M mount. Chris says, "Just wanted to share an image taken last weekend out at my astronomy club’s dark site in Landers, CA with my Stellarvue SV70T and reducer. This is 5 hours of data with the SV70T and an SX-694 camera with Astronomik 6nm Ha, L3, and new DeepSky RGB filters. Each filter was 6x10 min exposures. The Luminance was 1x1 and the other filters were 2x2."
