LDN1251 in lrgb

Recommended Posts

LDN1251 is a dusty molecular cloud situated in a busy region of Cepheus that includes many dark nebulae including the shark I had a look at a while ago. It is approx 14LY across and 1000LY distant. 

This image came from my triple widefield rig and consists of 

L - 74 x 10’ and 75 x 7’

R - 24 x 5’ G - 31 x 5’ B - 21 x5’ 

I found this object difficult to draw out hence the dominance of the luminance channel. I also tried drizzleintegration to improve the resolution from the native 2.7-3.2”/p. 

c&c always welcome. Thanks for looking
