    Default Messier78 LRGB



    Finally got around to getting more data on this target before it was too late for this year. This is 20 each RGB @300s taken with the TV-85/QHY9M and my new Gen2 RGB Astrodon's and 25 L @420s and 30 L @300s taken with the NP127is/QHY16200A with the Gen2 UV/IR Cut. It's 10.4 hours of integration time.
    Hope ya like it!

    Hi Tom. Your M78 (NGC2068) just jumps out from the monitor screen. Excellent contrast and dark dust clouds/lanes. I am glad that you have found some workarounds for putting up your fine captures on the forum. Thanks for sharing another great image with us Tom, and the best of wishes for many clear skies.
