Close-up shot of the centre of this star forming region in the constellation Cassiopeia.

Moon is way this week but no problem with narrowband filters. 80 percent moon on the 1st September but still got good results.

Unsettled weather this month so only managed to collect hydrogen alpha data.

Data collected on two nights 28th August & 1st of september.

Hydrogen Alpha image with 5 hours of data. 30 x Ha 10 min 1×1 binning.

My LRGB little dumbbell shot was poor. Too small and faint for my setup. so two narrowband images this month.
