Canon-Nebulosity Tutorial for Beginners
by Kip Pauls & Arizona Dollar Bill Logan © 2007
Eventually, we learned Nebulosity by asking a lot of questions on various astro-imaging groups. In an attempt to help others, we have written this little tutorial. Hopefully we have written it in an easy step-by-step guide. If we can understand it, you will too. Thanks to the work of John Armstrong, Michael Covington, Ed Hall, Michael Garvin, Craig Stark and many others for their support.
Although Nebulosity can be use with many cameras, this guide is specifically designed for those who have a Canon DSLR camera and Nebulosity for astro-imaging.
