ic-1795

IC 1795 (nicknamed the Fishhead Nebula or Northern Bear Nebula) is a bright emission nebula of about 70 light-years across with glowing gas and dark lanes of obscuring dust, located just over 6,000 light-years away from Earth in the northern constellation of Cassiopeia

Well, finally some clear skies and time to do some imaging.

This image was taken over 2 nights. Using a Hydrogen Alpha filter (Ha)  for the reds, Oxygen  (OIII) for the greens, and Sodium (SII) for the blues.

I had some other images I took over the earlier part of  the summer, but was having mount issues and they didn’t turn out too well. This one is a good start. Hopefully I will get a chance to do some more imaging soon!!

Also, I was unable to attend the Table Mountain Star Party this year because of the fires, so no images from there.
