Lagoon and Triffid Wide

Took this last night with an old Pentax 135mm f3.5 mounted on a Sightron Nano Tracker. Didn't quite nail the PA which was crucial for this focal length on the tiny tracker but it did make a quick and easy set up before bedtime!

I shot UVIR cut and some 7nm Ha to enhance the nebulosity. Captured with a modded Canon 550d. Backyard Bortle 6 skies under an eased Melbourne Lockdown.

Thanks Peter, yep, the old 550d just keeps on going. Don't know what shutter count it's up to so I hope it doesn't fail on a night using it under pristine conditions!

Mick,
The wide fields are getting some airtime of late- this one came up a treat. Nice work.
