NGC1432 Maia Nebula

GSO 8″ Richey-Chretien Optical tube, Skywatcher NEQ6 pro mount,Atik 383L+ camera, motorised filter wheel and Astronomik filters.

Last bit of the peladies I haven’t imaged. Looks like I saved the best to last.

With relection nebula I’ve had poor results. So this image worked out better than expected.

I did try to get more data on two separate nights but a 70% moon was in the sky. The moon stopped the faint detail.

LRGB image with 4 hours 30 minutes of data and 5 minute sub frames. 34 x 5min Lum, 7 x 5min Red,7 x 5min green & 7 x 5min blue.
