    Default Boo! Vdb 152



    Greetings. There have been some nice Vdb objects posted of late and I was hoping I could get more data on this to give it justice and post it for Halloween but with another 48 hours of rain predicted, I do not see it happening. This is 2 1/2 hours of HaRGB data from September that I have reprocessed. To me it looks like a ghost flying in from the right. Anybody else see that or am I losing the rest of my mind? Thanks for looking.

    Nice image Scott. I really like this turn to the dark side! I do see something that is rather spooky in there.

    Scott,

    nice work but I don't think this one has any Ha. Most, if not all van den Berg objects are blue reflection nebula or stars. You might try taking some luminance when you get a chance. It will really pop out.

    Thanks Dan. Not much Ha at all here, I actually used the Ha along with the RGB to create a synthetic luminance. When I imaged this back in September, I thought it was the Cave Nebula but Stellarium slewed to the wrong spot and I ended up with this.
