Description

This image of the Cone and Fox Fur Nebulas was made with a rare Astro-Physics 206mm f/8 refractor combined with an SBIG 16803 camera. At first glance this would seem like the ultimate imaging platform but consider that a loooooong refractor is going to collide into the pier as it approaches the zenith. Unless you do a meridian flip a cassegrain allows going past the meridian if this is important to you.
The image was made from Foresthill, CA using Astrodon LRGBHa filters. Star reduction was applied to see the nebulas more easily.
