Sh2-129 – Potato Nebula – Mono

Some people call it Flying Bat Nebula, but I think Potato Nebula is the more fitting name for Sharpless 129 (Sh2-129). The bright star in the upper-right is Alderamin and in the upper-left quadrant you will find a nice compact planetary nebula. This target deserves a little more exposure time to bring out more of […]

IC1318 – Sadr Again

The Sadr Region, IC1318, once again. This time the data is from the FSQ106 at the Deep Sky West Observatory. Exposure: H 10 x 1800sec, RGB (15,18,17) x 600 sec Date: 2016-04-20…2016-05-14 Setup: Takahashi FSQ106 EDXIII with QSI 683WSG-8 Site: Deep Sky West Observatory, NM, USA

IC1396 – Emission Nebula in Cepheus – Bicolor

The Sh2-131 emission nebula in Cepheus with the embedded star cluster IC1396 and home to the famous Elephant’s Trunk Nebula VDB142. It is a large emissions nebula with stunning inlays of dust clouds absorbing most of the lights. The total size of the complex corresponds to about 10 times the full moon. This is a […]

Sadr Region

The Sadr region, IC 1318, is the busy neighborhood round the mag 2.2 star Sadr or gamma Cygni. It is a large expanse of nebulosity with dominant Ha emission nebulae and various dark nebulae. The Crescent Nebula (in the lower left cover of the image) is embedded into the region. This is one of my […]
