    Default NGC-2392 (Clown/Eskimo nebula)



    Captured this last Saturday night, after getting the best drift-alignment I've been able to manage since my first attempt a couple months ago (Celestron 150mm f/5 reflector on a cg-4 mount; Orion G3 mono Starshoot CCD). This image was stacked and stretched in Nebulosity from 28 10-second subs, with an artificial flat created and applied in Photoshop. The inset shows the nebula structure and even some of the dark ribbons in the outer shell. It won't grace any coffee table books, but I'm pretty happy with it.

    Hi Joel. A pretty nice NGC 2392 Nebula here. This is some very good work with a 150mm reflector and the Orion G3 camera, and just under 5 minutes of data. Thanks for sharing this with us Joel, and best wishes for many clear skies.
