The Wizard Nebula (NGC 7380)

 

This image was captured through 3nm ultra-narrowband filters and is a composite of ionized Sulphur, Hydrogen, and Oxygen atoms and displayed with a modified SHO "Hubble" Palette. Data was collected over 2 nights from the 11th to 12th of October 2021 from the outskirts of Vancouver, Canada.

 

Link:  https://astrob.in/zbcwg3/D/

 

Imaging telescopes or lenses: Planewave CDK 12.5

Mounts: Astro-Physics AP1100 GTO CP4

 

Unguided

 

Chroma 3nm H⍺: 52x300" (4h 20')
Chroma 3nm OIII: 36x300" (3h)
Chroma 3nm Sii: 35x300" (2h 55')

Integration: 10h 15'
Pixel scale: 0.923 arcsec/pixel

 

With the season changing, clear dark skies are becoming very rare.

 

This target was captured on two semi-cloudy nights with not as much data as I'd hoped (10 hours),  the f/5.3 focal ratio helped.

Thank you! The CDK is performing well now, after about a year with the 12 and ordered the 14 liking it so much :)

Thank you Bernhard, I was hoping on getting more data but it has been the wettest October in years I think. Had to finish it with only 10 hours of data.
