Crouching Tiger .... Leaping Leopard ??


Recommended Posts

Does this feature have a name ??

Had the Edge 8HD set up for galaxies, but narrow-band filters in the filter wheel..... oh well, lets zoom in on the Rosette nebula.  

Our Feline Feature  is just to the side of NGC2239 (the lovely cluster of stars in the centre of the Rosette).


Celestron 8HD - Atik 414  - Hubble Palette  -  Ha (110mins)  O3 (50mins)   S2  ( 25mins) 

There is a whole line of interesting shapes to be found here.

Some serious FL there Sean, that's come out great.  I've recently found this one pops out to me as a galloping... horse?



oops!  I forgot to mention I had the 0.7x reducer on it.... still 1400mm, not bad.  The 414ex is quite a small sensor as well  and very sensitive.  it picks up some pretty faint features.

Yeah, that one strikes me as Eeyore the donkey, or a Gnu.
