Awesome shot Jon. Nice work.Another fantabulous image!
Thanks, guys. Glad you like. One of my best so far. Data on that one was so good.
I'm trying a new technique. I used an Astronomik CLS filter most of the year, but it is making it really hard to get images quickly. I have so few clear nights, and I need to image for several nights to get enough subs to produce the kind of quality I got in the Elephant Trunk...that I'm trying to image without the CLS filter now. It results in more complex work in post, but...if you can work through it, you get stuff like this:
Compare that to my first two attempts at Pleiades from the original post of this thread. One thing I really do love about the 5D III? It's huge full frame...has a really wide field, which is just awesome for images like this.
Beautiful!!! Been a fan of your shots Jrista. Can you tell me any starting cheap kit I can use for Astrophotography? Right now, I have some cheap but decent long lenses like 100mm F2.8 Macro, 70-300mm IS USM. For starters, do I need to buy more? Thanks! BTW, I'm using Canon 6D.
