John Swierzbin - Cassiopeia


The Cassiopeia photos were taken from my backyard in Santa Fe using a Nikon D80 and an old manual-focus Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4 lens stopped down to 2.8.
The exposure was 4 minutes at ISO 800. The camera was piggy- backed on the a very old Meade Newtonian on an equatorial mount.
I did an inexact polar alignment and there was no guiding.
