SH2-279 Running Man Nebula, M42 Great Orion Nebula and NGC1999 13th Pearl Nebula in (R+HA)GB

SH2-279 Running Man Nebula, M42 Great Orion Nebula and NGC1999 13th Pearl Nebula in (R+HA)GB.

 

All imaging took place at my remote observatory at e-EyE, Spain.

 

This image comprises 81 hours and 20 minutes of exposures in 560 exposures in total. It is a 4-panel mosaic with Hydrogen-Alpha data used to enhance the Red channel. A set of short exposures is used to bring out the detail in the core of M42 Great Orion Nebula, making this an HDR image.

 

R (Short) = (10 x 20s) x 4

R (Long) = (30 x 600s) x 4

 

G (Short) = (10 x 20s) x 4

G (Long) = (30 x 600s) x 4

 

B (Short) = (10 x 20s) x 4

B (Long) = (30 x 600s) x 4

 

HA (Short) = (10 x 60s) x 4

HA (Long) = (10 x 1800s) x 4
