    In my whole amateur life I have never seen colors in nebula's or galaxies, although I have some experience. Suppose its is my eyes. So I would be more than happy to have seen as much color as you have! Much comes down to the earlier mentioned experience level, but since you have already observed the Owl and a bit of color in M42, I am certainly not gloomy about your future observations. Keep on searching and things will become better!

    In the meantime: M94!

    Good luck and clear skies!
    I agree with John, as above!

    The M94 has a small bulge with high surface brightness, and therefore visible also under the suburban-to-urban skies.
    Under the better skies, magnifications around 100x and more reveal the outer extended halo.
    Half way between the M94 and Beta CVn is another galaxy visible through the small scopes, the NGC 4618,
    also known as the Arp 23 peculiar galaxy.

    Happy hunting,

    JG

    Thanks for that information, JG. I did not know those things before reading your post. There is a family history of high color sensitivity on my mother's side, painters and stained glass artists, etc.

    I would like to learn more about optics as well as about digital imaging. When I will find the time, I don't know. Too busy trying to prepare my students for the SAT and ACT so they have a chance to go to college even though their parents have not bribed and cheated on their behalf, as in the scandal recently reported in US news.

    Hello Mary,

    it's not much different here.
    When there is a problem, then parents make a little donation.

    Our former minister of education did not take her work on her Ph.D. thesis seriously enough, and lost her title.
    Then she made a little donation, and got the Doctor honoris causa from another university, ha, ha.
    Now, she is no more minister.

    Reminding our n_F_A, this is no more the Bismarck's Germany,
