    With a telescope of 84 cms.

    Hello to all:
    These images were acquired with the telescope of 84cms. of the National Observatrory, property of the UNAM. The astronomer in charge, Mr. Manuel Lopez, realised the photographies with a Marconi camera, cooled with liquid nitrogen, and soon I realised the processing of the images with software PixInsigth and Photoshop CS.
    For me it was a great experience to work with a professional astronomer and a so great telescope.
    The National Observatory is on the mountain of San Pedro Martir in Baja California, Mexico, and is one of the dark places but of the world, on 9100 feet of the level of the sea.
    Hopefully they like the images.

    Hello to all:
    Thank you very much by its amiable commentaries and to happen to see the photos.
    The UNAM (Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico) it organized this trip to the National Observatory, by his first contest of astrophotography in 2008.
    This is my photography that managed to be located thirdly and that allowed me to know this interesting place.



    Thanks to happen again to see.
    Many greetings
    Cesar

    Hello to all:
    Thanks again.
    For the photo of " Galactic Center", I used a EQ mount Vixen Sphinx with a Canon camera 20Da and a lens 24-70 to 70mm, iso 200, f/2.8, 3 photos of 10 minutes.
    Many greetings
    Cesar
