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.

Heart nebula?

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

My best guess is the Pacman nebula, but this one is seriously hard.

You did the California nebula in this colour scheme, not so long ago. Could it be a detail of that? That's my guess.

The Ha League...is that like an intergalactic Justice League? ??

Regarding da Vinci's masterpiece.....I would be very surprised if you have not imaged this target.  And if you have imaged it, this feature pops out, well, like the mystery hand in the Last Supper.  Here is a little more area for you to consider.

No...….Anyone who has imaged this target has seen this (if they closely inspects the image during processing)

Yay!!!  The Wizard is full of people and people parts, while the Pacman is full of animals and landscapes.

Perhaps a bit non descript.  Then again, maybe I just have not imaged this target, or have not noticed this feature.  I have not perused my collection (yet)

I recognized the star configuration off the the left of the image. It also helped that I remembered wim's first Ha image was the heart.?

New Rule:   The crop must be displayed at the angle it appears in the image from which it was extracted.  This is intended to lessen the potential for crops to be turned to make identification more difficult.  Then again Hunter got it, so maybe its not necessary.

Apparently :grin:

Otoh, if we make it more difficult, we have to use single star images.

Without nebulosity.
