The Squid Nebula <br> <br>  Sh2-129 and Ou4

The Squid Nebula

Sh2-129 and Ou4

As of 2017, this is the deepest shot of Ou4 that I have seen. The central figure reminiscent of a squid is so faint it was only discovered in 2011. 30 hours of imaging time through an oxygen filter were barely enough to make the squid stand out well against the red hydrogen in the background.

Exposure time approximatly 80 hours. Photographed at Sierra Remote Observatory. Data acquired by Bret Charles, John Kasianowicz, Daniele Malleo, Jose Mtanous, Rick Stevenson and Scott Johnson. Processing by Scott Johnson.

The Lagoon Nebula

The Lagoon Nebula

M8 is a tough object to image due to its low elevation. This image is composed entirely of narrowband data but is a combination of 2 processing sessions. The central nebula region was produced using a modified Hubble Pallet from Hydrogen, Sulfur, and Oxygen filters. The outer Hydrogen regions used the same Narrowband data set but the filters were combined differently to produce a true color image. The reason I made the image this way is simple. It stands on its own where the component images were lacking in one way or another.

Total exposure time 9.5 hours. Photographed at my home observatory near Bloomington, In.
