It has been a long time since I completed an image. One of my scope is mounted in a remote dark site. With the scope in my backyard, I started on Seagull Nebula/IC2177/GUM-1 at Canis Major/Monoceros border. This is a nice emission region with lots of Ha/HII/OIII. This is an extended object and I Was going to go for a two panel mosaic.

As usual, I couldn't complete the mosaic due combination of bad weather and travel. The target is now behind trees for me and I cant work on it this year. I got a good bit of Ha data but couldn't collect enough OIII. I only got 6x15 mins of OIII on one panel . I processed one panel and hopefully I can collect the second panel data later in the fall this year.
