IC 1848 the Soul Nebula
I had previously shot this area last year One major difference that jumps out is the B&W vs false color from this year. The color in all my newer nebula shots is false, created in photoshop where I turn the white areas of the nebula 'red' and the bright stars 'blue'. The other things to notice are the duration of subs/total as well as the roundness resulting from better guiding, which is a combination of better guide cam and better overall polar alignment techniques. Also the collimation was a bit better for this years attempt!
Second up is NCC 281 or the Pacman Nebula.
Here's a link to the 1920x1080 wallpaper edition!
Finally batting clean up for round 2 of my fall, clear and deep sky collection...
NGC 1499 the California Nebula. I think this is the area around the San Francisco Bay area! :)
