Description

I can't take my eyes (well, telescope) off the eskimo nebula. I like the faint structures a lot and keep trying to ban them onto a picture.

Next time i will try much shorter exposure times per shot but a lot more photos (something like 1200 x 8 seconds). Maybe then i am satisfied and can let the eskimo go...

2nd version, this time stacked with AutoStakkert after editing every single frame with GIMP. AutoStakkert is great when it comes to small nebulas.

C

3rd Version based on 2nd, now with a bit postprocessing like colour-normalizing and a bit more saturation.

D

Re-edited with PI.
