Description

The Crescent Nebula in Hydrogen Alpha (12nm). The nebula is about 25 light-years across and is roughly 500 light-years away.

I have been trying to play around with photoshop to try and get as much detail from the plate as possible. The total integration time is not that long. Shot at f/2.8 the image is not as sharp as it could have been. Guess this is all a learning curve.

This is a wide-field image taken using 60 seconds subs (43 in total). 20 Dark frames.
