"Interstellar space". Nebulosity and star clusters in Auriga. - [BBC S@N Magazine - April 2012]
I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out.
Target: This is the Flaming Star Nebula (right) and NGC 1893 (left) in Auriga with a little bit of Phi Auriga thrown in (top left).
Date: Tuesday 1st November 2011
Equipment: Orion ED80T CF (80mm triplet APO), Astronomik CLS, TRF-2008 x0.8 reducer/flattener, QHY8L CCD.
A total of 13 x 5 minute and 3 x 7 minute exposures. (If I were to try again, I’ll use 10 minute exposures but this could be tricky from home due to light pollution)
