Swindon, Wiltshire. UK

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

Bright emission nebula in the constellation of Orion. So bright I was able to reduce exposure times to 7.5 mins.

Clouds staying away tonight so collected 160 minutes of suplhur II data to add to my Ha & oxygen III narrow data. This gave me enough data to produce a hubble platte image.

SII/HA/OIII image with 9 hours and 37 minutes of data. 29 x 7.5min Ha & 26 x 7.5min Oiii & 22 x 7.5 min Sii.
