Orion Sirius 8 EQ-G Reflector Telescope with GoTo Controller
Nikon 1 V1 Processing: Nebulosity Exposure: 189 x 25 sec @ ISO 1600 Other Equipment Used: 24781, 05561 Notes: I was surprised by how well the image turned out since the viewing conditions weren't very good. There was a lot of atmospheric turbulence, my optics were developing dew, and it was a near full moon. But I'm proud for only my second deep-sky photo!
