NGC 7293 – Helix Nebula

From where I live(39-40 degree north) this target is very low on the sky and on the night I was imaging there was slight haze and lots of humidity. So not the optimal conditions but still I think it came out quite well. Imaging telescope or lens: Customized Carbon Tube GSO 200mm F4 Newtonian Imaging camera: Canon 650D (T4i) Modified Mount: Bresser Exos-2 DIY Goto with AstroEQ 39×300″ frames in total but I have dropped some in DSS after calibration so I guess it is between 30-35 frames. That makes total integration around 3 hours.
