NGC7380 - Nebula in Cepheus
NGC7380 - Nebulosity in Cepheus
  • Description: NGC7380 - Nebulosity in Cepheus, also known as The Wizard Nebula but I have never understood why! This shot is a digital composite taken with the same telescope but with different cameras and filters. Hydrogen-Alpha was taken in August 2005 with an ST-8XE camera and was used as the red channel. Colour was shot using RGB filters in August 2012 using an STF-8300M and layered with the older image. I was never happy with the RGB image, due to buggy firmware at the time most sub-exposures were ruined by the shutter being left half open. By combining the older H-alpha shot, the image was saved.

    Hydrogen-alpha image:
  • Camera: SBIG ST-8XE at -15C
  • Filter: Schuler 10nm Hydrogen-Alpha
  • Scope: Takahashi FSQ-106N
  • Exposure: 4 x 30 minutes
  • Location: near Cayley, Ab.

    RGB Image:
  • Camera: SBIG STF-8300M at -15C
  • Filter: Baader RGB
  • Scope: Takahashi FSQ-106N
  • Exposure: 3 x 10 minutes green, 2 x 10 minutes red and blue.
  • Location: near Cayley, Ab.
