Dusty Flaming Star and Tadpoles.


Recommended Posts

Imaged with Paul Kummer.

The first of five deep sky images completed this week. It is hard to keep up with the RASA!

Flaming star and Tadpoles.  I've done this before in HaLRGB but this is just RGB (OSC.)  The big difference is the amount of dust in which the emission nebulae are bathed. Because I used to rely on the NB data to find the emission nebulae I didn't go as deep as the RASA goes on the broadband. Finding so much dust around the emission nebulae was a real surprise and gave the region a new look, to my eye. I've also been impressed by the resolution in this week's images, not having thought of this as a high res rig. See what you think of the Tadpoles in this link to the full size:  https://ollypenrice.smugmug.com/Other/Emission-Nebulae/i-gKkD2DQ/A
