Description
The first image taken with my new modded 350D. Seeing was VERY poor with 95% humidity and water dripping off the telescopes. A fogbank rolled in at about 3:30 am - imaging continued till about 4:15. I chose this object as a first test for the new camera because of it's low surface brightness and high proportion of H-Alpha for the modded camera.
