Treasures of Cepheus

The collection

I made a collection out of my images from the constellation Cepheus. Pictures are taken between 2007-2013 with different instruments. Closeups are taken with my longer focal length instrument, an old Meade LX200 12" telescope. Wider field images are taken by using two camera lenses, Tokina AT-X 300 f2.8 and Canon EF 200mm f1.8 lens, both full open. All images are shot with QHY9 astronomical camera and the Baader narrowband filter set, H-alpha, Oxygen and Sulfur.
