NGC 2175

Recommended Posts

Taken 15th/16th February 2016

This was last nights attempt, this time of year Orion in perfectly placed and is visible for most of the night.


I decided on this target as it often gets over looked by the more popular Horsehead and Orion Nebula

The night was full of guiding problems and it was nearly 11pm by the time it started to behave itself.


Hoping I might get a chance to add some OIII and SII to it later this week, if everything behaves that is :angry:


As always it looks a bit better in Flickr!


15 x 900s Ha (3hrs 45min)
Binned 2x2
SW Equinox 80 APO and Flattener
EQ5 Pro Synscan GOTO.
Guiding: SW 9x 50 finder guider and QHY5.
Atik 314L+ mono
Baader HA 7nm
Using: Artemis capture, PHD, DSS, and Photoshop CC.

That's great. All too often this target seems to pop out of the background sky all at once but, here, we see it emerge gradually in the lower part of the frame. Nearly 4 hours, binned, makes for serious signal.
