Description

taken the same evening (but earlier) as the Prawn nebula I posted earlier. A trial of the Riccardi 0.7x reducer and new EAF focusser on my APM LZOS 130/780. Guiding for this was quite good at around 0.6 to 0.7 arc sec so most exposures were useable.

Stacked in APP and extracted Ha and OIII and recombined in Startools 1.7.
