M27, The Dumbbell Nebula, imaged over a span of two summers using two different scopes, my Explore Scientific ED127 FCD-100 last summer and my Tele Vue NP101is this spring. I initially planned something like a 64 hour project with the Tele Vue but the weather just didn't cooperate and I am ready to move on to something new.
Overall I love this image but the processing was a massive challenge due to the center of the nebula being so much brighter than everything else; very much an exercise in patience.
Overall this image is 40.6 hours of integration with a ZWO ASI1600mm Pro using a combination of Astronmik and ZWO filters.
Mounts used were an Explore Scientific G11 PMC-8 and a SB Paramount MyT.
As always critiques and comments are more than welcome.
