Description

This is one of my longest integration efforts.

Getting some good weather over the Christmas period.

RGB data was captured back in October using an ASI094-MC camera.

Lum and Ha were captured this week using an ASI1600-MM.

Have blended some Ha into the red channel using PixelMath.

Also known as the Bean Nebula, NGC 1763 has a cluster of young hot stars (NGC 1761) clearing the interior and ionising the surrounding gases. It is one of the brightest nebulae in the LMC outside of the Tarantula Nebula.
