Orion's Belt & Sword: mosaic in H-alpha

Recommended Posts

Here is the attached file.

Davew,

17x9x18000 I mean:

17 are all the photographs;

9 is the number frames exposed for each photograph

1800 are the seconds exposure of each frame.

The total exposure time is then: 76,5 hours.

Best regards,

Danilo Pivato

Beautiful stuff Danilo. You get a real sense of large "pockets" of light in amongst the dust.

I'm quite jealous of your little balcony, if I had something like that I'd get a pier installed, although it might get in the way of deck chairs :)

Davo,

I try to answer your question.

This is a Cometary Globule classified as CG 35. All around him,

the nebula GN 05.35.6.01 (SIMBAD Catalog), or:
