IC1348 The Soul Nebula in hubble Palette
2 x 1 mosaic


This one didn't stand much of a chance with a nearly full Moon and the object being at a low altitude, so this is really a dummy run for later in the year.

There are two panels in the mosaic stitched with Microsoft ICE. On the night of 5/6 April 2015, I took 16 x 600s for each panel in Ha with my Megrez 90 scope with 0.8x focal reducer and Atik 460EX mono CCD camera. The colour is from a single frame image taken two years ago with my Megrez 72 and 0.8 FR.

I am pleased as to how it has come out and look forward to doing a proper version when the nebula is higher. It will then be capable of being presented at a larger size.
