NGC 6888 in narrowband

Postby mkp » Sun May 31, 2009 2:16 pm

Waiting for the Veil Nebula to appear from above city skyglow, I tried NGC 6888 for future reference. This is 5x7min Ha and only 1x7min OIII, therefore noisy:

Sky conditions in early hours of 1.6.09 not great, clear skies and warm with no dew but poor seeing.

Thanks Luke. The Jellyfish Nebula is different, it’s in Gemini. This one’s Cygnus.

That image is the cresent nebula (i googled it) .I thought it was an upside down image of the jellyfish. Looks like a jellyfish to me,LOL.

Sorry i just saw that you had said it is the Cresent nebula, and it is very different to the Jellyfish.

Lovely image.

Commented elsewhere but well worth a repeat - this is a great image, Malcolm!
