Hi everyone
Here is an image of the IC1318 area in Cygnus. This is from 2012 data that I finally got to. It is a 2 panel mosaic with 22hrs in each panel 44hrs total imaging time. Ha9.5hrs, OIII6.5, SII6.5hrs each panel.
This was imaged from my home observatory here in Pa with the TMB130mm and Apogee8300.

Bill,
This is a great looking image. Absolutely impressive detail. The narrow band data gives a completely different impression and I had a hard time recognizing it. It took me a while to orient myself, but I finally found myself - North is down.

beautiful work shot
far better at full scale than smaller version
unfortunately, my monitor's not big enough :bawling:
might consider horizontal orientation so it can be better appreciated at full scale on conventional monitors

Thanks Bill and Mike!
Bill, I thought about the horizontal orientation but I really like the framing in the vertical.I guess I've looked at it to long in that position:-)
