As I continue my journey in imaging the fainter lesser known and obscure planetary nebula, my adventure took me to Aquila, Delphinus, Pegasus, Sagitta and Capricornus. Last night, Sept 16-17, was a bit dewy, clear and average transparency. The Moon was rising around 8:30pm, but it was behind a tree for most of my imaging session, so it did not bother me until I packed up to go home.

 

I used my Nexstar 8se OTA at native F/10 , ZEQ25 mount, ZWO ASI294MC camera with the Optolong L-eNhance filter attached, coupled with my HP laptop running SharpCap 3.2 Pro. I took a total of 20 - 15 sec exposures for a total accumulation of 10 minutes each. Gain was set at 395 with 2x2 binning. Post processed in CS2, Paint.net, and annotated in MS Paint.
