Noisy Phantom


Recommended Posts

A late start last night waiting for the clouds to move over.:D

The phantom neb (LDN1622):

I got 14 x 10 min's through the 10" newt before it went behind next doors house( the nebular not the scope).

Tuff target at 1200mm, I couldn't see it to frame the shot even with 3 minute bin x 2 subs so I had to use the star field.

This is going to need a lot more time to reduce the noise.

I've never seen this before Mike, but it's well named.

Spooky looking thing, and a well imaged. I'seen dark nebulae before, but this is unique to me. Very difficult to frame I guess, as you said.

Will you add to it in time then?

It's in Orion Ron, above and to the left of the Horse head on the other side of Bernard's loop.

Not sure if I will give it the time it needs at this scale, I might have a go with the 80ED though.
