Swan Nebula


Swan Nebula

Just a quick image, only 2 sets of HaLRGB 300s each
20% Ha added to red and 10% to blue.
12″ SCT with QSI583 camera and 0.62x focal reducer. Colour images binned 2×2.
Guided with PHD
Acquired and stacked in MaximDL, final processing in Photoshop.
There are a few spikes on the brighter stars, caused by the dome getting in the imaging path. My current dome is way too small for the new mount.
Still working on getting a good polar alignment, but its getting closer.
