Halloween Pumpkin (Sh2-232, Sh2-231 & Sh2-235) in Ha-Sii

Recommended Posts

Thast's the first time that I post a picture on this forum :D

I would like to share this rare nebula, my last postcard..
 
It's a not common nebulae and very faint, Sh2 232 is the biggest one at the centre top the image.
Also on the picture Sh2-235 (the blue one) and Sh2-231.
 
After to see how it looks like on this orientation, I would like to named this group as Halloween Pumpkin (I hope you could see it!!)
 
In total 16 hours of integration time with very carefully process.

Just I add a new version with more aggressive SCNR to reduce the green gradient a bit.

Very Nice, the colouring is of an eerie pastel. I will not discribe exact colours though as my wife has indicated to me I lack in this area, thanks for sharing this it's an awesome nebula...

Thank you so much, even for my it's soy pastel, I like more brilliant colors (please check my other images http://www.astrobin.com/users/Carballada/ ?) but this object it's so faint...

Well done Jose - a striking image with great interest.

Have you tried adjusting each channel in the histogram to help with the background and also it might help the depth of colour in the nebula?

I've just bookmarked your image on ABin - one for the 'to do' list!
