Description

NGC 6188 is an emission nebula located 4000 light years away in the constellation Ara.

To the left of the image you can see the emission nebula NGC 6164 and you can also see its halo. NGC6164 is approaching at about 54 km/sec and is 4200 light years away.

This will be the last image at 27 gain 10 offset. It appears from testing with the QHY600m I could be doing higher gain at 56 and offset 30 or 40 and achieve more optimum results with narrowband.
