The Dumbbell Nebula (M27)

Finally had another clear evening with a dark sky so I fired up the C8 and shot the Dumbbell Nebula, a planetary nebula in the constellation Vulpecula. I shot this in LRGB and Ha using my ASI533MM Pro mono camera. I also used a Starizona SCT reducer/corrector so the net FL was 1469 mm. I’m glad I grabbed some Ha on this target because it really made the red color pop. I captured 14 180-sec subs using the R, G, and B filters, 28 120-sec subs with the L filter, and 14 300-sec subs with the Ha filter. Processed using PixInsight and Affinity Photo.
