Ngc 2264 , Ic 2169, Hubble's Variable Nebula. Asi 071 pro first light

Recommended Posts

I got this data on the 6th and 10th of this month and it's first light for my new Asi 071 pro. The standard camera was sent back to Zwo and the upgrade purchased as it has the image buffer and cooling that actually works properly. There was of course a small charge, but as i had bought the camera second hand it was a no brainer to get a brand new and much better designed and performing camera.

Hubble's Variable Nebula is a reflection nebula made of gas and fine dust. It lies approx 2500 ly from earth in the constellation Monoceros. The nebula is illuminated by the star R Monocerotis and it is the dense condensations of dust near the star that casts shadows over the star changing it's apparent illumination, hence variable nebula. You can just make it out in my image as a pale comet like feature towards the bottom left.

This is 8 hours in 300 second subs at 0 gain -20 with Idas lps filter

Hope you like it.

Thanks Mike. It's certainly an improvement on the one it replaced.
