Description

Fisrt attempt for a wide field view of this area. I was also looking for IFN around....those well known gaseous nebulas within the plane of the Milky Way galaxy lie beyond the main body of the galaxy. These nebulae clouds, are composed of dust particles, hydrogen and carbon monoxide and other elements.
Regarding image capture, Luminance and Ha layers with the RASA and ASI1600 camera were quite good, but color layer with my ASI294 is not so good..so I have to redo my acquisition . sky also is a key element to capture those Integrated Flux Nebula.
ASI1600 Luminance : 111 x 60 seconds
ASI1600 Ha : 40 x 180 seconds
ASI294 RVB : 252 x 60 seconds
