Sh2-27

NV

Sh2-27

Sharpless2-27, is an enormous but faint emission nebula; the FoV is 20°. To me it looks like the face of an Orc, complete with bulbous features and scars across his right eye! Taken with a Computar C-mount f:1.3 objective on my Mod 3C night vision device, using a first surface 2" Antlia 3.5nm H-a filter, 1/4s exposure averaged in NightCap for 25s, ISO 160, camera was iPhone XR
