NGC 6995 (close up)

Recommended Posts

A narrow band close up of NGC 6995 with Ha mapped to red and OIII mapped to blue. An artificial green was generated by Carboni's PS actions. I decided to attempt realistic looking colours by calibrating the image via Pixinsight's Photometric Colour Calibration tool.

The result of a 30 hour integration is shown below and was taken with my Esprit 150.

Apart from the interesting detail, I found if you stare at the image you can see a variety of shapes - so far I've spotted a large horse (red), an owl (blue) and deer skull (blue).  What you can you see ?

Excellent and interesting image.  Bottom right - Mrs May's head in profile unusually red but her shoulder and upper torso are in blue.

Best regards from George in Lowestoft
