According to the picture, it was taken 9-12-15. I use either gimp or Photoshop elements 13, or both..

I have a modified DSLR - a Canon T3i. I use my Canon 60D the most for astrophotography (along with my CCD cameras) but I do use the T3i on some particular DSO targets.

Can you pick up the nebula, or HA spectrum with that mod? I know the milky way has color but my Nikon can't pull it out without a conversion. Who did your mod?
