A Star Formation Region East of the Lagoon Nebula - SHO (Hubble Palette)


My last image of the Star Formation Region East of the "Lagoon" Nebula from all of my exposed data. This image is a Hubble Palette style narrowband color image (SHO) located in the Sagittarius constellation.

Also known as the "Chinese Dragon" nebula because of the small dark nebula in NGC6559 resembling the shape of a Chinese Dragon but to me it looks more like a "Thanos" fist.

This image was taken through a doublet 80mm refractor (at 500mm focal length) on multiple nights between 26 July and 10 August 2023.

The total integration time was 18 hours and 10 minutes of 37x600 of Hα, 24x900 of SII and 36x900 of OIII subs.

Software used to capture and stack this image was APT 4.26, PHD 2.6.11 and DSS 5.1.3.
