Wow.  That's about the best LRGB image I've seen or this target.  And that means the first image you posted was Lum?  Even more impressive.

Thanks Rodd. No this a combination of ha from my Asi 1600 and rgb from a osc Asi 071. 10 hrs total and converted to greyscale as i thought the colour would give it away.

Details here

That's what I said before I scrolled down to see that H already guessed it.

Yep. Do I lose my telescope now???

No, but it's your turn again.

Are the images too easy, or are we spending too much time in the imaging sections?

I think they have been a bit on the easy side.  Here is one that I call the smiley face.  I wonder if anyone else has spotted it.  Again, the crop was saved at 1:1 scale, but the page appears to have enlarged it a bit.

Or maybe Ha regions have certain characteristics besides their main point if interest, such as the dark dust patches in the elephant trunk nebula, or their absence in the cone nebula.

The latest one is a lot more difficult though. Asterisms can basically be anywhere in the night sky.

My guess: in the neighbourhood of M33 (I remember you spent quite some time on that image).

Good guess but no.  This particular asterism is fairly close to a DSO.  It stood out when I imaged the target.  It was very prominent to me quite hard to miss.

OK--how about this one.  Leonardo da Vinci, the painter of the heavens.

My turn again?

Some time ago I joined the Ha league. This was first light. Not the best conditions, and I still needed to dial in the best camera settings.
