Telescope: Skywatcher 8" f/5 Newtonian
Focus: Prime focus
Camera: SAC7B, uncooled
Exposure: Mosaic of 2 images each 72 & 53 x 25s
Date: 30th July 2003
Processing: The usual YRGB
processing, with the subtraction of a 'banding flat' (see the
Advanced Processing page) to remove
fine banding noise from both images in the mosaic.
A very bright nebula, imaged on a
beautiful clear night. The right part of the mosaic had the fewer
frames and it shows somewhat in the lack of depth.
