NGC 896 in Cassiopeia with Infinity
« on: August 14, 2016, 11:56:42 am »
NGC 0896
02 24.8 +61 54
Size 27x13

17.5": at 100x with OIII filter this is a fairly bright emission nebula, very
large,  about 20' diameter.  Elongated roughly E-W but consists of two distinct
sections (N896 and IC 1795) which merge together.  The bright western portion =
N896 has a high surface brightness, round, ~7' diameter and a star is off the NW
edge.  A weak dark lane separates N896 from faint IC 1795.  The region is weakly
nebulous without filter
. (NGC/IC Project)

But, with the Infinity and its ability to increase the Red Channel we took a nice picture last night.
