Sh2-101 Tulip Nebula in HST palette

Recommended Posts

Two clear nights. This consists of 4 hours of Ha in 10 min subs and 60 mins of OIII and SII in 10min subs binned 2x2.

I am really not very sure about the colours but this will do for now.
Chris Heapy on UKAI pointed out that I had captured the bow shock wave from Cygnus X-1. Just to the right of the tulip are two stars one above the other and quite bright. The lower one is the position of Cyg X-1 and the shock wave can be seen just above that.


There is also what a club mate of mine call the Baby Dinosaur nebula to the left - with a good set of teeth :grin:
