Owl nebula (M97)

Recommended Posts

Wonderful, wonderful to be out again :lol::) Shame I had to pack up for work at 11.00pm :)

The Owl nebula is a planetary nebula with a 16 mag star at it's centre surrounded by cylindrical matter-pool (green) which in turn is surrounded by gas of lower ionisation (red).

It is about 6 000 years old and somewhere between 1 300 to 12 000 light years away.

Taken with NS8 Atik x0.5 FR Luminence 50x45 secs RGB each 15x45.

Very faint on screen with a 45 sec exposure. Apparently the green emission makes it brighter visually than photographically.

Fewer RGB subs than I would have liked cos had to go to work. The blue was a waste of time because there is obviously very little being emitted - didn't show up at all.
