Corona Australis Nebula Region


These nebulae are located in the constellation Corona Australis, between γ and ε Coronae Australis and features NGC6726, NGC6729, NGC6727, NGC6723 and IC4812 and is not a popular group of objects or area of the sky to be imaged by amateurs.
I imaged a close up on the blue reflection nebulae back in August 2020 and wanted to expose it at a lower focal length to see what surrounds the blue nebulosity.
This area is dark and not as vibrant as other more well known and popular objects, but I think that the combination of reflection nebulae crossed by dark nebulae made an interesting image.

This image was exposed through a 80mm f6.3 refracting telescope with a QHY268M camera for a total exposure time of 17 hours and 20 minutes.

This image was exposed with a QHY268M through a simple doublet 80mm refractor (at 500mm focal length) over 2 and a half nights, as a 2 plate mosaic but heavily overlapping so that I would only need to crop out the most distorted edges, retaining the whole original frame size... exposures started just after midnight on 10 July and being completed on the morning of 12 July 2023, for a total integration time of 17 hours and 20 minutes, 8 hours and 40 minutes per plate.
