Description

Hello Friends,

this time I went again for a rarely imaged object probably due to its size. IC 1295 is a very nice PN with faint internal structures.
What I had noticed, very often the week Ha part is missed. Probably since it is very week, many skip it, because it does not contribute too much to the final image and it saves a lot of time. So my goals for this image were:

1. Show as much structure as possible
2. Show the dominant shock wave front
3. Pay tribute to the Ha portion

IC 1295 also gives a nice pair with globular cluster NGC 6712 on the left hand side.

The data was collected during three nights.
I hope you will enjoy it!
