NGC1499 - California Nebula in Ha


Recommended Posts

Hi All

We had another clear night on Thursday although the moon was full and high again. This is 12x20 minutes with the FSQ106ED and H36 with a 5nm Ha filter. The Lodestar autoguider was playing up so the guiding was done by my M8C camera. I last tried this over a year ago with the TMB115 but only did 2x15 minutes, this can be seen on the nebulae page of the image gallery on my website Imaging The Heavens - Home Page

A full high resolution version of this can be seen at http://www.pbase.com/imaging_the_heavens/image/119992157

Thanks for looking

Best wishes

that is just stunning Gordon! :icon_eek: I'm no expert, but I'd guess that with the Moon up and full, it'd be hard to get detail and depth in an object, with the moonwash across the sky? Fantastic detail and your framing is spot on :hello2: great work and thank you for sharing with us :mad:
