Hi All,

I have an opportunity tonight to get some needle galaxy data, but the moon is full.

Which is the better way to get the data:

L, Ha, Oiii, Sii

or L, R,G,B

or some other combination??

 

Thanks,

Gene

You'll have little to no signal from the galaxy in narrowband.

Good luck!

True. But until many years ago people also said that there was no OIII in Sh2-129 until somebody went crazy deep and discovered a new nebula.
