I haven't felt like image processing for a while, but the bad weather has motivated me to work on some data from late summer. The dark nebula at center includes LDN 767, 768, 769 and 772, as well as the blue reflection nebula, vdB 126. The dark nebula above it, looking like a check mark, includes LDN 778, 783, 781. And, of course, at lower left, is the Coathanger asterism, Collinder 399.  There are some diffuse blue reflection areas around the Coathanger that I wasn't previously aware of.

 

For this wide field, I used a Canon 200mm lens with an f/3.5 front aperture stop. Camera was a ZWO ASI071MC Pro.  Subs were 28x240s at unity gain.

Hello Mark,

 

this is a fantastic capture of these less known Lynds dark nebulae between the Coathanger and the Alpha Vulpeculae, I have been observing through the 15x85 binoculars in September 2011.

 

Thank you for the amazing capture,

JG
