Sh2-115 and Sh2-116 in Cygnus

Recommended Posts

I managed to make use of the limited period of semi-darkness last Saturday (13th) to capture this image of Sh2-115 (main image) and Sh2-116 (planetary nebula PK 85+ 4.1), the small ball of nebulousness to the lower right.

This is a first posting of data using a 'new to me' Chroma filter set (thanks @Steve 1962), so this image was taken using a 3nm Hyd Alpha filter. Just 6 ten minute subs before the cloud came over at around 2:30am. Data captured using a 85mm refractor/mono CCD at 1.7"/pixel. Minimal processing in PI (DBE, MLT and some curves). Cal files need re-doing at some point😜

Hope to collect some OIII and RGB soonish.

CS, Andy

Very promising... must be frustrating with the short nights and turn in the weather!

Looking good, you have the start of a nice project ,

On the plus side this part of the sky will be with us a for a fair while so obtaining the other colours looks promising.
