Description

IC2177 in Narrowband
Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, for me IC 2177 has a majestic avian presence, with it's ethereal curtains of Ha drifting in Stellar winds.
Revisiting the region I have previously imaged but now as a 7 panel mosaic to free the subject and allow this bird space to fly!
There's a nice Herbig Haro object in the upper right hand side, and maybe a few more objects of interest for the scientifically minded throughout the field.
Data gathered over three months from suburban Melbourne, Australia.
Ha 5nm 50 x 1800secs
O3 3nm 16 x 900secs Binx2
S2 3nm 16 x 900secs Binx2
RGB 15 x 60sec ea per panel (315 subs!)
Absolute nightmare to register, even using registar my laptop feinted several times!
However, like the little engine that could I kept at it and eventually got the image together :)
C&C welcome :)
