Description

This image is the sum of 566 60 secs unguided subs taken during the nights of the 18th and 19th of June 2020 - Telescope was an Orion USA 25 cm F 3.9 - camera a QHY183m - mount Ioptron CEM60EC - filter tecnosky 8.5 nm ha - aquisition and processing with Astroart - cosmetic with PS. Image is almost unprocessed. I will use it with this O3 image:

and with an image taken with a DSLR and an Acuter 90ed refractor to try to make an HA O3 RGB image.

The Dumbbell Nebula (also known as the Apple Core Nebula, Messier 27, and NGC 6853) is a planetary nebula (nebulosity surrounding a large star) in the constellation Vulpecula, at a distance of about 1227 light-years. It was the first such nebula to be discovered, by Charles Messier in 1764. At its brightness of visual magnitude 7.5 and diameter of about 8 arcminutes, it is easily visible in binoculars and is a popular observing target in amateur telescopes. (Wikipedia)
