Description

2h 40min of integral Ha, OIII and B exposures of LHA 120-N 120 collection of HII regions [1] complete with an NGC 1918 SNR [2] (pages 10-13), [3] along with several star cluster in the middle of the LMC captured remotely using Telescope #1 (ASA-RC D = 1m f/6.8, FLI ProLine 16803) system of ChileScope observatory, over 3 imaging sessions carried out on Oct 30, 2022, Oct 31, 2022 and Nov 2, 2022. The color solution is HOB to RGB mapping with manual correction in post-processing.
