Some widefield leftovers from the Haute Provence

When I was in France end of September my CMOS camera was attached to my refractor (see previous post). In parallel I used my Canon 6D(a) – Samyang 135mm f2 – Star Adventurer combo to make some widefield pictures of some well known constellations. Some of these pictures are multiple frame mosaics, so please click on the pictures to view these in full format (and count the stars)

cepheus-cassiopeia
Dusty fields from Cassiopeia to Cepheus

auriga
Constellation of Auriga, also needs some dusting

cassiopeia
The “W” asterism in Cwassiopeia

orion
I tried to capture the bright star Sirius nicely in the middle but misaligned a bit. Fortunately I got some nice nebula and dust in the frame.  (shot with 35mm lens)
