Nikon DSLR lens widefields

Taken with my QHY8 and the Nikon adapter.

I have a new lens, a Nikkor 28mm, with a lovely flat field. Some images from 1st April, 300s subs, cant remember how many of each (will have to go hunt them down). I think the CLS filter used is too harsh, so I will have to find the funds for another IDAS filter, as well as taking much longer subs.

Click on image for the larger version… M51 and M101 are both visible in the large version 🙂

And if you squint, you can kind of see the merest hint of milky way… click on image for larger version
