    Default Sharpless 179



    Sharpless 179 (G121.6+00.0, Böhm-Vitense 2 and others) is a planetary nebula located approximately 650 light-years away in Cassiopeia.

    Luminance – 24x600s – 240 minutes – binned 1x1
    RGB – 8x300s – 40 minutes each – binned 2x2

    360 minutes total exposure – 6 hours

    Imaged October 31st and November 26th and 27th, 2018 from Dark Sky New Mexico at Rancho Hidalgo (Animas, New Mexico) with a SBIG STF-8300M on an Astro-Tech AT12RCT at f/8 2432mm.

    I also captured 12 hours of Ha data but it didn’t really add anything to the image.

    See the link above because the attached image has been down-sampled.

    Peter,

    it may look wide angle, but the field of view is very small. This one is at 2430mm.

    Wow, 12 hours of fishing in deep waters and coming up with nothing in the net ... that's dedication.

    Nice image all the same.
