NGC1491

Recommended Posts

Hi.

Interesting little Nebulae in Perseus,with a distinct comet shaped centre.

This was taken with a 102ed at F6 and a Atik 314l+ mono ccd.

It consists of 2hrs apiece in both Ha and O111.

The centre is quite bright and really dominates its surroundings.

I think i have a slight issue with guiding,as the stars are slightly off round.

Cheers.

Mick.

I thought so too first untill I realized that it is also known as Sh2-206 which I imaged about a year ago. Nice image Mick!

Funnily enough, I literally just finished this target yesterday. 

It's also known as the Fossil footprint Nebula. 

Very nicely done.

Clearly an object that stimulates imagination. I called it the Wild Boar Nebula since my version of it seemed to have tusks!

You have a great start Mick and if you spend a few more hours on it there is more to be found in this object - as allways😉, and if the weather collaborates.....
