Hi,

Discovered in May 2011 by Nicolas Outters at Sh129 here the most challenging object I "fished" untill now!
I only got 210 min of OIII but I plan to fry a little more :). No darks or flats either. My main issue is the high temperature I have here (about 30ºC at midnight!!!). My poor QSI could reach -10ºC, no less!

Tak FS102 NSV @ 641mm + QSI532WS-M1

It really looks like a squid in the negative image!

Ever consider loading your images to Astrobin? The ads on ImageShack drive me nuts. :p

That is one super faint object. Hard to separate from the much brighter and even larger SH2-129's H alpha which usually dominates all images I've seen before this one. Very well done.

Thanks :-)
I like the challenge of this one! I will try a false RGB or a SHO if I have the time for it! At this moment <i'm doing a little of M27 with a new filter!

Great job!

I have to say that does in fact look exactly like a squid too, very cool target.

Just a suggestion about AstroBin: it supports multiple revisions for the same image.

If you want to show crops or different processing techniques, use the "Upload new revision" entry in the Actions menu.

If you acquire new data at night, then upload a new image altogether.

This keeps the integration statistics sane.
