Hi All,

 

Spaghetti nebula, aka Simies 147 or Sh2-240, is a tremendous object in Taurus: five times the diameter of the moon !

Counterpart of this size, the density of the gas has become very weak, as it's the difficulty to perceive it.

Here is how I discovered part of nebulosity from namibian sky, then improved the view during two pristine nights of southern alps, through my 25" Obsession.

Very detail report at http://www.deepsky-d...-240/dsdlang/fr

Beautiful Image but too big a target for my system. Maybe I'll try for the lower part next clear night if it's still around.

I can appreciate 7 h of "exposure" under dark mountain skies! Very well done, Bertrand, this is great work. Marinara-colored, that spaghetti through that filter, eh?
