Recommended Posts

I thought some of my others were hard , but this one is sooooo faint you would not believe it , i have always wanted to go after SH2 objects as they are not in any scope go to bases as far as i know , so stuck in the RA and DEC and hoped for the best m Blimey dead centre , but could only make out a very very small part , ,have to say this has given me great pleasure to get this one .

Sub 60 x 60 secs Processed in Maxim , no DDP as that would have been to harsh , so gentle stretching only, and a few other tweaks

ED80 with HA ,

Cheers

The Cave Nebula is a large emission nebula of glowing hydrogen gas that is part of a larger molecular cloud in the constellation Cepheus. Many young stars are emerging from this cloud. Although this object historically has been designated Sh2-155, Patrick Moore has more recently included it as entry 9 in the "Caldwell Catalog" of grand deep sky objects that were not recorded by Charles Messier in his earlier catalog.

Crikey Rog. I thought Sir PM had a list of easy stuff similar to Messier's list. You got a good one there as well, that ED80 is doing great stuff for you.
