Description

Before I went outside tonight I decided that I was going to try IC 2177 the Seagull Nebula. For me this is a relatively difficult object. I've only imaged it once before. I tended to shy away from it because of the difficulty. However tonight I wanted to test my new Nikon D5600 camera so I chose a more difficult object. My new AT60ED scope and my new Nikon D5600 camera make a nice pair for imaging. With all of that said please enjoy my most recent image of IC 2177.

Description: I'm getting sick of the constant rain and clouds. I wasn't really pleased with this image. I must have reprocessed it at least 50 times. This is my latest version.

Description: I can't leave it alone. I looked at the image with fresh eyes and didn't like the star field. I reprocessed the image concentrating on improving the star field.
