VDB141, the Ghost nebula
Posted 16 September 2013 - 02:24 PM
Early September I had the pleasure to spend a week in the south of France where I could enjoy clear skies with close to no light pollution (SQM 21.4).
One of the targets on my wishlist was VDB141. Here you can see the result. I also took some pictures of NGC7331, NGC891 and M74 (with SN2013ej). High resolution pictures and more details can be found on my website. Thanks for looking.

I must agree, this VDB141 was a difficult image to process. I'm sure it can do with double or triple the number of lights. But when I'm out for only a few nights to an astrophotography party I carefully need to plan what and for how long I will image an object. Returning home after one week with having captured only 1 object seemed a little bit strange to me.

A very nice version of this faint object, excellent processing.
