Re: Astro Physics and Nikon Join Forces

Many years ago as a wee lad, I fell in love with a wide field shot from Lick Observatory of this same region. The difraction spikes really added to the depth and splendor of the image. Wanting to reproduce the same effect, I placed a pair of wires in front of the dew shield on the 7/7 to create the difraction effect for the film image.
After shooting the H-alpha field a few weeks ago for my book project, I remembered that the 7/7 image had nearly the same field coverage on 6x7 film. Registar software easily combined the two shots from completely different instruments and formats.
Here is the H-alpha only image:
