Description

The last in my 35mm narrowband sky survey for now, as I've put the z61 back on the mount. This one was a bit of a salvage operation as I accidentally shot the OIII data with the gain set to 390, which required collecting new bias/dark frames, and I lost over half the data to clouds. The full moon did not help either, but these 3.5nm Antlia filters seem to make that mostly a non issue.

IC 405, The Flaming Star Nebula, and IC 410 The Tadpole Nebular, are the stars of the show here, but a number of open clusters (M35, M36, M37, & M3 are present as well as Capella, the sixth brightest star in the sky.
