The Crescent Nebula in HOO
« on: June 01, 2020, 01:01:11 PM »
Greetings all!

Here's a HOO color synthesis of this classic target taken over the weekend. Some of the best imaging conditions yet this year here in Michigan. Quick stats are...Atik Horizon mono, Baader Ha and OIII filters through a Stellarvue SV70T APO refractor. 60x30sec Ha and 80x30sec OIII processed through  Deep Sky Stacker and Nebulosity.

I tried to emphasize the beautiful and delicate blue OIII layer that gently envelops this nebula as much as possible given the limitations of my scope and total integration time.

Hi Craig,

Nice Crescent! I was on this too the other week, one of my favorite objects :)

Thanks Vince!  It's one of my favorites too. I'm really intrigued with the OIII layer. BTW, just lost power here due to the wind from the remnants of tropical storm Christobal...weird having it come this far north. Power went out before I made the morning coffee...:-(

I think I'm on my 3rd cup! Hope the power is restored soon!
