NGC 7129 The Rosebud

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I captured this beautiful nebula the last couple of days. I'm surprised that there are so few images of this one, as it seems a perfect target with the reflection nebula, star cluster, dark nebula, and faint galaxies behind the dust.

I was able to pull out some faint nebulae in the background due to my ~30 hours of exposure. I was especially surprised by the interesting H-alpha region covering NGC 7142. Some of the galaxies I've found in this image are PGC 97261 - Mag 12.87, and PGC 168082 - Mag 13.52. 

FSQ 106 ED

ASI 1600mm

L: 72x300s

RGB: 50x300s each

H: 110x360s

Total = 29.5 hours

 

Questions and comments much appreciated!

Very beautiful! I tried it too a while ago but couldn't get much out of it from my light polluted back garden.

Thanks, Bob, Rodd and Emyliano! This has actually been on my list of targets for some time. I still want a close-up image of it with my C8...

Very nice image.  This object had escaped my attention too. I doubt my equipment would do it justice. It's well placed at the moment too.
