First Light for New Scope
Over the course of my birthday last week, I ended up with a new telescope. A very nice little Stellarvue Nighthawk II 80mm F6 refractor. It is not an Apo, but is a very, very good achromat with a hand figured lens. I shot this image of the Veil Nebula with it. It is 56 minutes total exposure time with 8 minute subs, using my Canon 300D at ISO 1600.
