Some days ago I had shot OU4 with my 130/910 mm apo and 0.79x reducer. But it was too much focal length and also I messed up the framing, So OU4 was stuck at the outmost edge of the frame and I did not like it. Furthermore the effort of isolating the Squid had been to much to let it be like this.

 

So I used the 80/480 mm TS Photoline triplet apo with the 0.79x reducer (380 mm) last night to give the two beasts some room.

What kind of odd physics and chemistry is taking place there ???    The squid really does look squid-like.

Beautiful image, it is amazing how nature light years away can mimic life here on your small blue planet, or at least trick our eyes into making us believe it looks like something from here on earth.  Great work enjoyed looking at it. waytogo.gif

The Squid is much like Minkowski 2-9, the Butterfly nebula. But if you take the image of the Squid and look at it face on, then you would get an appearance much like the Ring or Helix nebula, looking down the tube rather than across it.

Hi Brian, in fact the O-III data for this image are from my bigger scope as I wrote. The effect would be the same if I had shot it with only one scope. The OIII is really limited to that fish, there is no mixing with Ha.  And I held back the stars on purpose what makes the effect stronger.

With every image I make I am happy again to have the opportunity to dive deep into this phantastic cosmic wonderland.

 

Thank you both for your comment!

Sorry for my childish try to make a silly pun in English, petert913 don't know if you read it (it was about bat-bed-squid nonsense)....deleted it already blush.gif

 

No chemistry in there just my NB filters, APP for the preprocessing with PS and LR for the non-linear processing.

 

Cheers
