about 2 hours of integration, 1 minute subs w/ an ASI6200 cdk1000 F/4.25

 

i actually also did O and S, but the color version just didn't look very nice to me, so i'm sticking with the Ha.

Love it, contrast is great and has an eerie look to it, fitting for Halloween. Is it intentional? or is it just me that thinks it looks like a ghost, great shot either way.

 very much intentional!  i tried to frame it to look like a ghost the best i could, you know, for halloween.  :-)

 

next year i think i'll attempt to image SH2-136 which is think is a great ghost image, but with the moon out there was no way to get a clean shot of it.  i'm just blown away at the adam block shot of it.  that kind of image is definitely something to aspire to.

Thanks for the shout out. Your NB of IC 63 is looking good. I attempted (long ago) a straight up RGB of the field:

No Ha... but it still glows nicely.

So nice. Love it.  This is such a nice image and fitting for the Haloween spirit!
