Or at least that's what I see in this portion of the Soul Nebula.  This was taken in mid-September from my backyard in the SF Bay Area, between bouts of wildfire smoke that made imaging impossible.  This is 36.2 hours of data (73x600 Ha, 72x600 Oiii, 72x600 Sii), taken with a TEC 140 and SX-694 mono camera with 3nm Astrodon filters on a Takahashi EM-200 mount.

Really nice image!  How are you liking that TEC140?  I'm waiting for a TEC140FL to ship any day?!?!?!?  All the best, Scott

The Smiling Bat works too!  Thanks!

I love it.  It delivers great results consistently.  Mine is an older model, not the FL, so yours should be even better.

That is an interesting view! Very nice! I've noticed a lot of nebula has great potential for abstracts.

Thanks!  Yes, this part of the Soul nebula in particular can be imaged at many different focal lengths and resolutions.

Very nice contrast....especially in the darker regions.
