    Interesting that they managed to capture the H-Alpha emissions in that section of the night sky - they must be using a IR modified camera, must have specifically captured those areas with a IR modified camera with a specialised dichroic filter and added them in the final composite.

    it is a Beautiful image, displaying superb technical mastery.

    This was an amazing effort by the photographer, from what I remember he took his dad out and used 6 Astro dedicated cameras, on a German Equatorial Mount, using Luminance, Ha, Red, Green and Blue filters.. Putting it together would have been a massive undertaking, he has done well. Ha regions being Hydrogen Alpha.

    comments and criticisms are always appreciated.
    Unless I post into the "NOT FOR CRITIQUE" section then the above doesn't apply.
