ngc 7380 – wizard Nebula

Posted on

We’ve had pretty consistent cloudy weather for a while now, but had an opening last night to get the telescope back out. I captured 5hrs of Ha, SII, OIII data on the wizard nebula. After processing the data a bit, its obvious more SII and OIII data is needed. I decided to leave it pretty raw for now and come back to this once I have a chance to get more data.

I mapped the Ha data into the Red, Green, and Blue channels to give it some color.
