Helix Nebula in RGB – Different Data

The Helix Nebula again, this time with data from the Astro-Physics Riccardi-Honders-System at Deep Sky West. The pixel scale is around 1 arcsec/pixel, just as for the previous version from the Astro-Physics Starfire Refractor, but the field of view is smaller. At the same time the system is much faster, total integration time was just over 8 hours as compares to 17 hours with the Starfire.

Exposure: HLRGB (20,24,16,18,16) x 600sec Date: 2017-09-18…2017-10-16
Setup: Astro-Physics RH-305 with FLI ML8300 Site: Deep Sky West Observatory, NM, USA
