Description

This image was taken over the weekend (June 6 & June 7) during a rare two-night break from the usual clouds. NGC 6992 is one of my favorite objects and I never miss a chance to take an image of it. This marks the first time I have imaged it with the ASI1600mm Pro through the Explore-Scientific 127ED.

I continue to be very pleased with the 127ED. Paired with the EQ6-R Pro and the ASI1600, it has performed very well and will probably remain my primary imaging scope for the rest of the summer.

The image is composed of:

Ha: 10 x 300s

Ha: 10 x 180s

OIII: 10 x 300s

OIII: 10 x 180s

I would like to get some RGB data for this target, especially for the stars. Hopefully, I will have another opportunity to image NGC 6992 in the coming weeks.
