Photo Details

The Wizard Nebula… I always wondered why it was called that and I recently did a little research and figured it out. Be sure to look through the photos, I outlined one to show you too.

This image set was captured in narrowband and it still not finished, like basically all of my images… not sure if they will ever be “finished”. All of the subs are 10 minutes each but each filter varied on the amount of usable subs. Ha has 110 minutes, OIII comes in at 90 minutes, and SII has a total integration time of 70 minutes. That gives the combined color image a total of 4.5 hours worth of data. Still need lots more data because a lot is missing… maybe one day it will “not” be cloudy.
