This new moon I went for a night under the skies with a goal to image these 3 images.
Although I use a fast scope (F2.8) - I wasn't sure there will be enough time for the project.
To minimize the time for the O3 and S2 - I imaged them in Bin 3x3.

Here is the outcome:

Sh-190:

Sh-132:

The Pacman nebula in 3 versions:

HA RGB:

Only Ha:

I hope there will be many nights like this....

All the best,

Kfir

Kfir,

excellent images. You pulled in so much Ha that the pacman is almost unrecognizable in the Ha only image.

Thanks for sharing,

Dan

Those are beautiful images! Thanks for sharing. It makes me want to try a wide field of the Pac Man to capture all the faint nebulosity that seems to stretch over a wide area.

I love the Dumbledore image, being a HUGE HP fan.... however I am having trouble "seeing" it.
