Greetings all,

I had time to get out for a little while the other night and was able to grab a few photons.  I will go back to this one in a few days, (weather permitting) and try a wider FOV and gather a lot more data.  It is still an interesting star birthing region, nonetheless. Quite dusty with lots of nebulosity about.

 

Bigger with capture info here.

 

Cheers, Tim.

Nice Tim!  Will have to try and see if I can see a little bit of that visually in my Z12. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Gary,

Not one of my better images, but I sort of went in 'blind' on this one after ditching a few other targets.  Visually I would guess, a very difficult target to see.

Much appreciated, Tim.

Another great work.  Yes, I know you THINK it is not your best work, but Hmmmm what have I posted lately????  LOL Really, I like this image.  Nice little nebula.  Was it challenge to process? I guess I am wondering how much was there before processing as it looks like a tough object.

Ray it was a slightly difficult object for processing. There is a lot more nebulosity in this area, as per usual I shorted it a bit on exposure AND I forgot that I was at F/10 instead of F/6.3. I plan on revisiting this target. No, no torch....More like a cigarette light, or a cell phone these days, LOL.
