Halloween Pumpkin Nebula Sh2-232
« on: Dec 05, 2019, 23:14:55 »
I don't think this is the official name for this nebula but some-one on Astrobin named it as such and i think it's pretty apt.

Again very faint, needs bags more data and dark skies - if only!!!  Maybe some time I might try to get some more.

Imaged over 2 nights.
Ha (Baader 3nm) 17 x 600 secs
Sii 13 x 600 binned
RGB stars 10 x 150 binned (each filter)
Total imaging time 6 hours 15 mins.

Atik460EX Baader filters.
WO ZS71 with x0.8 FR
HEQ5
