Hello All

Acquired during October and first half of November:

IC1727, NGC 672, NGC 684, IC1731 and others in Triangulum - LRGB

Details here:  https://www.astrobin.com/ad4asj/C/

Dates:  15 Sep, 6 Nov, 7 Nov, 10 Nov and 14 Nov 2023
Frames: OSC - 86×300″(7h 10′)
L - IDAS LPS-P2 50 mm: 49×600″(8h 10′)
Integration: 15h 20′

A beautiful pair of interacting galaxies in Triangulum.   The whole area is peppered with other NGC and IC objects as well as a myriad of PGC background galaxies.

LDN1529, Barnard 215 in Taurus - Mosaic 2x1 - LRGB

I had captured LDN1529 last November but wanted to complete the extended region of dust to its West.

Lovely result Roberto. 

The Molecular cloud processing is much much better than mine was despite several attempts. 

This will go in December's report as November has already been finished and sent. 



I have just been putting this into the presentation for December and looking at it more closely, the hours and hours you put into this.  Plus the full resolution is absolutely stunning, seeing it on this scale does not do it justice.



Thank you Carole!  The full resolution picture is too large.  Astrobin's full resolution somehow reduced the size of the file which is good news.  I could update the image here to link to that.
