Description

This image was captured in a two days campaign, during 2014 January, in Santana de Parnaíba, a little city near Sao Paulo, Brazil, where I have my observatory - Observatório da Serra.

The Seagull nebula is part of the Canis Majoris reflection nebula complex. Most of the nebulosity visible on the bottom of this image is part of the Seagull's Wings (catalogued as IC 2177 or Sh2-296) and the Seagull's Head is catalogued as NGC 2327 or Sh2-292.

This was captured using Baader HA, OIII and SII filters and processed using the CCDStack and PS. Then my friend Nando Pinheiro finished it on PI revealing magnificent details of the wings.
