Here's a cheeky one.....

Abell 12  ( the hidden planetary ).  (not my picture)      I tried it last night Ha and o3   with the Edge and Atik 414.  ... and there it was . Have yet to process.

Great thing is you do not need to find a bright star to re-check focus when you do the filter change.   There is a big convenient one in the FOV.

Located at the the top end of Orion....

no probs..... I'm just setting up for tonight.   It appeared in Ha and O3... and looking on Astrobin, seems like the wavelengths of choice..... and Nitrogen !!! if you have one of those filters just lying around.

I then need a clear moonless day to get the RGB data, but God knows when I will get that.

I'm having a go at California in Ha just for something to do. Star shapes are poor as I'm still waiting for my Gerd Neumann tilt adapter from 365 so not approaching any project seriously until I can get round stars!

Abell 12   (The Hidden Planetary)

There yer go...   

Mu Orionis tends to dominate the processing.  Ha-O3 combined in PS.

@iwols

A couple more from last night.  If you have the focal length, then there are always a few smaller emission nebulae/objects dotted around the heavens away from the Moon.

I went for a few old favourites which are now in the Western sky, to get my 'eye' in again with the imaging  so to speak. It's been a while.

Both with C8edgeHD with 0.7x, Atik 414ex .  Crab in SHO, HH in Ha-O3. ( although not much O3 in there)
