Walking on the Moon

Eskimo Nebula (NGC 2392)


Recommended Posts

Back in March 2011 i attempted to capture this nebula right next to the moon. I captured 90x 30 sec exposures at ISO 800 with the 550D and the Explorer 200.
At the time i was happy with it as i was a complete beginner, but i've always wanted to redo this target.

After 5 years i finally decided to give it a quick go with the QHY5L and see if it would be able to capture some details on this target, and it sure did!

I restacked and reprocessed my old data from 2011, and aligned with with the L data from the QHY5L, and used the old data only as color.


A huge improvement over my first attempt in 2011:
