<p style="text-align: center;"><iframe allowfullscreen="true" src="https://easyzoom.com/embed/348521" width="780" height="440"></iframe> Cepheus to Cassiopeia is an absolutely gargantuan image spanning across huge swaths of our home galaxy, showing many different narrowband nebula that are very faint and rarely imaged together. This large image which covers several hundred times the size of the full moon provides context on how these different faint nebula interact with eachother. This image is a 35 panel mosaic captured in SHO narrowband, and it contains a huge number of the very faint emission nebulae which populate this part of the northern milky way. There is the flying bat nebula, the...
NGC6543: The Cat's Eye Nebula
Here is my latest capture the Cat's Eye Nebula, SHO+RGB image from Sierra remote with the 16 RCOS! Was really surprised to see so much detail in the inner oxygen shell of the nebula. Editing was of course a challenge because of the drastic dynamic range. The core of the nebula I made SHO, the outer shell HOO, and the background and stars are RGB. Data for this image is available through the SRO VAP (https://www.sierra-remote.com/sro-virtual-astrophotographer.html) The Cat's Eye Nebula is a well studied planetary nebula 3,000 light years away in the constellation Draco.
