IC1318 - Nebulosity Around Gamma Cygnus
Nebulosity Around Gamma Cygnus
  • Description: Nebulosity around Gamma Cygnus, known collectively as IC1318. This is the first complete image with my smallest refractor, the Takahashi FS-60C. This image shows that the deep red of hydrogen-alpha penetrates forest fire smoke nicely with a minimum of scattered light. In western Canada this will prove to be handy as we tend to get a lot of forest fire smoke in the summer. Field of view in this image is about 2 x 3 degrees.

  • Camera: SBIG ST-10XME at -15C
  • Filter: AstroDon 6nm Hydrogen-alpha.
  • Scope: Takahashi FS-60C refractor at f4.4
  • Exposure: 9x10min H-a
  • Location: summit of Mt. Kobau, BC.
  • Date: August 20th, 2009
