The Clown Nebula


Recommended Posts

A new one for me, not really sure what it's supposed to look like!

Had a little search on SGL and couldn't find that anyone had imaged it before - but that can't be right.

Taken with the C925 with F63 reducer. H9 with 7nm Ha filter. 2 x 5 minute subs and 5 x 10 minute Subs...


Can't really see the clown in it either :)

There is a strange effect on the stars - that doesn't seem to be in the subs, but some of the subs did have slightly elongated stars. Guiding wasn't perfect by a long shot!!!

Hello Ant.

The eskimo name becomes more obvious when you see the detail in the core. A trick with this one is to go for much shorter subs as it's pretty bright....2 minutes will do it fine, even with NB filters.

I've imaged it a few times. I'll post a pic if you want....thought it was on my site but it looks like I've not put it on there :)

It's an odd effect on the stars for sure....no idea wht's causing it though.
