Description

During the last full moon, my friend Luiz Duczmal paid a visit to my observatory to capture some narrow band data on the prawn nebula. We managed to capture 2 hours of data before the clouds rolled in.

IC 4628 is a large emission nebula in the Scorpius constellation. The nebula is estimated to be at 6000 light years and is dominated by ionized hydrogen emission of nearby hot young stars.

Luiz Duczmal processed the acquired data.
