IC5068 - the nebula just below the pelican


Recommended Posts

This is the less well known neighboring nebula just south of the Pelican Nebula. I thought I had taken my last image for the season since I have lost astrodarkness, but then a clear night appeared and it is still about 3 hours of nautical darkness, so I decided to give these rather bright objects a chance using the NBZ dual-band filter. The dual-RASA rig also allowed me to double the data collection.

It could be that I get one more short night and I am thinking about adding a frame to the left or below this one for a two-panel mosaic. Any suggestions?

Imaged with dual RASA8 and ASI2600MC with IDAS NBZ filter. All on a Mesu 200. 62 x 5 minutes, 5.2 hours. Processed in PI and PS (including Star Xterminator).

Cheers. Göran
