NGC 2392 Eskimo Nebula


 2012 Jan 5

Another planetary nebula, in Gemini.

Canon EOS 5D MkII ISO6400 105x8s
254mm Newtonian f=2400mm (2x Barlow) f/9.6
HEQ5 equatorial mount, driven but not guided
2012 Jan 5 22:00:23-22:20:00 UT
From Rookhope 54.8N 2.1W 330m asl. Rural, almost no light pollution (3 Bortles)

Here I was experimenting to see whether shorter exposures for each frame (8s instead of 32s) would give me a sharper result. I think not.
