First Narrowband Targets

24 Mar, 2019 19:35
Going to be doing some narrowband imaging next week.  First time for this for me.

Will use ZWO ASI 1600 mm and ZWO Sii, H alpha, Oiii filters, all 7 nm band.

Can folks recommend some easy targets to start with, maybe 10 or so?

You picked the worst time time of year to start narrowband!  Just about everything left gives you only 3 hours in the early evening.  So you will need several nights for NB capture.

When the Moon is up this time of year I’m usually shooting Ha data on galaxies.

John gave you the biggies, Jellyfish being pretty bright so that might be the call.
