Description

Hi Folks,

Poking around Galaxy map I found this cool mountain shaped, Ha rich object near NGC 2451 and ó Pup. So thought it was worth imaging to see how it would look under the full moon :)

No idea what it is or how to ID it - so would welcome input on this.
Sky Safari 5 pro suggests IREC (InfraRed Excess Clouds) 374 Dark Nebula...

It's dim though, this is 3.5 hrs 5nm Ha already.
Will have to test to see if there's any O3 or S2 present.

Anyway - thought some may find it interesting to see something different! :)

Update: Added NB & colour data & mapped image as per the following recipe ...

3nm Ha=Blue 8 hrs 1800 secs
3nm N2= Green 5 Hrs 1800 secs
3nm S2=Red - 5hrs 1200sec Binx2
RGB 15x60sec subs ea

Reminds me of one of those big mutant monsters from the movie, 'Pacific Rim' as it emerges from the depths.

There appears to be no O2 present.
Tricky to map the colours and still show three seperate wavelengths as there are all so close together.

* Processed on my laptop while on holidays - hope the colours ok...
