Ic 1318a in Gamma Cygni Nebula


Mark Griffith

Swindon, Wiltshire. UK

Skywatcher NEQ6 pro mount & Equinox 80mm refractor, Atik 383L+ camera, motorised filter wheel and Astronomik Ha LRGB filter set.

Another bright part of the Gamma Cygni nebula.

Tried one minute rgb data so I could devote more time to hygrogen alpha captures. This helped to bring out more of the faint detail.

Focus was slightly out as I forgot to check it with my bartihnov mask before starting the image run.

Data captured over four nights. Two nights imaging cut short by clouds and the full moon.

Image with 180 minutes of Ha data and 30 minutes of RGB.
