    Question H-Alpha with stock DSLR



    When I go to my dark sky site, I plan to take a photo of the lagoon and trifid nebula. I understand that the lagoon nebula is a Ha object, and I am just wondering if from a dark sky I would still be able to get a nice pic with a stock canon t5i and no filters?

    If not, any other recommendations?

    The Lagoon Nebula is a naked eye object in dark skies, so there is lots of light that your camera will see. You might miss out on some of the details and fine colour that an Ha-sensitive camera could see, but your camera is not totally blind to it. It is definitely worth a try.
