Description

This is the core of the Iris Nebula taken with LHaRGB filters. This target was imaged with an ASI1600MM camera and an RC8 scope. For this target, I have stacked about 17 hours of data.

I am glad to be able to resolve the inner details of the nebula. The central star is responsible for most of the illumination inside the core.
