      Description

      RCW 85 is a very beautiful, if not so frequently photographed nebula in the constellation Centaurus. I already started with the object at the time of the full moon in April (Ha images with very good seeing), this week I took the broadband images - unfortunately the seeing was not so good (1.4"+). Some ended up in the trash, I would guess a good 100-150 min...But yes, sometimes it's better, sometimes it's worse.
