Very nice. Lots to see in that. ?

 

That's a big nebula, with young cluster Berkeley 59 in the upper left quadrant which was born out of the nebula.

Thanks for the info Pete.

Always good to get the background information on these things.

Bit of an odd ball this one.

Came across this whilst searching for a target to do at Kelling.

I decided to do it due to the interesting star formations around it.

Atik 414 EX

 

21 x 600 second subs in HA

Captured and stacked in Maxim

Slight polish in PS 6.

Well that’s a coincidence I am doing the same one I think. Berkeley 59, was only talking to ibbo a few nights ago about it ?

Sheila ?

I only went to this last night as a last resort.

Looked in the sky atlas for a target that was going to be high in the sky and settled on this.

Once I saw all the different star patterns around it I figured go for it.

Only managed to get data in HA from it though, nothing I could see in either O111 or S11.

Are you doing O111 and S11 be interested to see what theAstrodon filters manage to pull out..

Yes I will but only if kelling co operates with enough imaging time

 

 

 

Of coarse it will. Positive thoughts Sheila.

It is going to be clear every night. ?

Wow, great stuff Graham, I wasn't even aware of this.

 

@Sheila, don't actually own a star atlas, I've been finding stuff out on SkySafari, Stellarium and other programs. What's the best Star Atlas to have do we reckon?

Interstellarum - Deep Sky Atlas.

 

This one is not cheap, but I think it is the best. It comes in several bindings, the most expensive has damp proof pages for use outside on humid nights.

There are many much cheaper ones that are also very good, but Interstellarum is very clear, detailed and goes very deep covering everything most amateurs would need.

Wow, Interstellarum IS expensive isn’t it!

 

thanks both for the tips, I might see if I can have a peek at people’s atlases at Kelling this week

As Graham says the S&T pocket atlas is really good and a lot cheaper. ?

 

You did ask about the best. ?

I have the Cambridge Star Atlas, even though I failed the entrance exam.

 

Great shot, Graham.

Thanks guys. I lkke the idea of the pocket atlas if it's that detailed. I'll go for that

 

Cheers

They have a jumbo version out as well, but I don't think it's plasticised like the smaller one, so I wouldn't risk it out on a dewy night. It's exactly the same with all the detail, just a larger format. Much nicer to sit down and plan the night's viewing with. It can be picked up for around twenty quid.
