IC 1848 - 8.8.2020 at 00.00 - 8.8.2020 at 00.00 Lahti Observation number 92698

Visibility IV / V

IC 1848 or Soul Mist.

After the summer break, it will finally be dark enough again for at least a couple of hours of the night to be able to take pictures that are already valid. I tested the new iExos-100 tripod I got, and it's a working game. The material is about 3.5h front 180s exposures with Ha, OIII and SII filters.

Well, that stand seems to carry a 5kg load and the guide stays nicely with it.

      In an emission nebula the hot stars nearby cause the gas glow. This should not mix with reflection nebula, where the gas is only lit up by nearby stars.

      The appearance of a gas nebula is irregular, and the fainter parts of it need bigger instruments to be visible.

Pääsit sitten laittamaan kauden ensimmäisen syvän taivaan kuvan.
Ja vielä hyvän näköisen sellaisen.

Jalustakin näyttää mielenkiintoiselta.
