Simeis 147 (Sh2-240) Spaghetti Nebula from Bortle 8
« on: Nov 26, 2020, 13:14:59 »
Been wanting to do this one for years, but it is a challenge due to it's size and it's dimness.

The Samyang lens fits it well, but not Bortle 8, but decided I'd give it a go anyway.  I did take some Oiii but it is too faint to be of any use.   It was also a processing challenge.

Ha 21 x 600
RGB 5 x 150 each
Samyang lens 135mm @ f2.8
HEQ5
4 hours HaRGB

Very nice Carole.

This is fantastic Carole!  I have this scheduled for later in the winter.  No wide lens for me so it's a 3x3 mosaic!

Thanks Roberto,, 3 panels, that will be a challenge.  I ought to get some more data, but it was quite a task and really would benefit from darker skies.
