The floating brain of space.
An emission nebula in Cygnus, part of the rich-band of the Milky Way we can see, and is "approximately" 5,000 light years away from us.
Estimated to be 4-5 million years old. The star that has caused the shell of gas will likely supernova when it finally runs out of fuel
This was tough to process as nearly all 22 images were affected by high wind and high clouds. Just shy of 2 hours integration, definitely needs a lot more pumping in (most detail in astro images comes out on the 10+ hour mark)
Tried to emphasise the dark nebula structures and Hydrogen wisps in the background.
Techy details for the astro-nerds:
Altair 72EDF + dedicated 1x flattener
Altair 26C + Altair Duo Band HA/OIII 7nm filter
iOptron CEM25P guided with Altair MG32 package
Captured in NINA (~22 x 300s)
Processed in PI with Master Dark and flats
