Whoa, what's going on with ISON's nucleus there, Sergio?

Postby AstroScience » Mon Nov 18, 2013 5:57 pm Thank you, Ann, I'm glad you liked it. Well, it's simple as it gets, it's a DSLR, Canon T3i camera. That's it. Amateur equipment. :-) It's been modified though (replacing internal filter), to accept more of Ha wavelength, as many DSLR astrophotographers do and I still use it for daytime works with custom white balance. No additional Clip-In filters have been used.
