IC410, IC405, IC417 and NGC1931 in colour

Mount: Avalon Linear Fast Reverse
Scope: Takahashi FSQ85 with 0.73x reducer
Camera: Atik 460EXM with 3nm Ha and OIII filters

This 2×3 pane mosaic in Ha and OIII has taken me 2 months to complete. It is a total of 152 x 30 minute exposures and a total integration time of 76 hours. The Flaming Star in this case is aptly showing as a bright flame orange. The 4 targets all nestle neatly in the frame.
