Description

I went to Casitas de Gila, Gila, New Mexico in October for astrophotography under clear, dark skies. I was there for 12 days and there were a few nights of excellent transparency and seeing. However, high altitude smoke from the California wildfires made imaging a challenge for a few nights. NGC 7380, the Wizard Nebula, was captured with narrowband filters, Hydrogen-alpha (Ha), Oxygen-III (OIII) and Sulfur-II (SII) over three nights. This is a false color image is combination of 80% SII and 20% Ha in the red channel, 60% Ha, 20% SII and 20% OIII in the green channel and 150% OIII in the blue channel using the SHO-AIP multichannel combination script in Pixinsight. R, G and B data were obtained to create a star color image that was combined with a starless false color nebula image.
