    Really nice image with strong but subtle variations in colour. Not an object I've seen before. Very interesting so thanks for sharing.

    Regards George

    awesome picutre! and is that a faint galaxy just at the bottom left of the nebula?

    Thanks ! Yes, the very faint galaxy is IC1296, which is about 15th magnitude.

    Superb! Still too blue stars in the background, but your balance gives the nebula fantastic colors, very natural.

    Thanks for the comment ! :hello:

    Thanks for the info!

    WOOOW! After looking your setup online. I think you have spent almost or more than $20K... That is a heck of a professional setup. That is why no doubt the images are so nice.

    Yes - I have spent quite a bit.... However, I started with something a little cheaper - a SW ED 80 Pro + NEQ6 mount + SX M26C camera with an ST80 for a guide scope and a Lodestar X2 guide camera. Although I decided to go straight into guiding I decided to simplify my entry to astrophography by initially going for colour camera.

    Hi Alan,

    I am new to this forum and I am at the stage of exploring Astronomy. If you don't mind me asking, what kind of Telescope you are using and setup?

    Thanks!

    Hello !

    At the moment I'm using a SW Esprit 150 on a 10micron GM1000HPS with a SX Trius 814 camera - all controlled by ACP Expert - have a look in my gallery in the album "Automated Observatory" and you'll see some pictures of my set up.
