M27 - a deep Dumb-bell

Recommended Posts

After several attempts with ever-longer exposures and an age trying to process the results, I finally managed to wring out some evidence of the faint outer shell of M27...

This was a combination of 300, 600 and 1200 second Ha/OIII exposures with my Esprit 100/Atik 460 combo, plus a bit of binned RGB for star colour. Details (if you are interested) here...

The detail in your image is breathtaking. Defnitely one of the best pics of M27 I've ever seen. Brilliant!

If you look closely you’ll see the graininess of the “wings” where I really pushed the curve.  I then had to batter down the bloated stars and smooth the result, though only over the masked bit.   The wings really are faint and I think it needs dark skies to do them proper justice.
