Thank you...This little OSC camera is turning out to be a bit special

That is just gorgeous - a stunning image. I'm not sure how you could improve on it if I'm honest.

Thanks...thats kind of you to say....I think it would be more about refining the noise levels in the faint areas and perhaps less star related artefacts...These were a couple of the things that hounded me during this process.

Fantastic detail and colour Peter. One of the few nebula that actually resembles the name given to it.

Thank you....I agree it really does look like the typical 'Disney' type witch crooked nose and everything.

Wow that’s incredible!!!

Thank you Peter.....as much as I like CCD, Cmos is definitely the way forward.... It does take some getting used to especially if like me you have used CCD for years. To get the most out of the data exposures need to be quite short, and ther are a few things to understand about Gain and offset....but to be honest its not that difficult.

Absolutely superb to see this as wide field as this and the colours are amazing! With this wide fov, I can really see it looks like a witches profile. Love it 👌

An astonishing picture. The 2600 looks to be well matched to the lens. The processing is superb.

Peter - I've only just dipped into the forum as I am off doing 'summer things' however that is an absolutley stunning image, I have also joined the ASI2600MC club and hope to get a lighter poratble mount and search out some dark skies later in the year for some RGB imaging - but this is such an inspirational image, so much to enjoy, the dust clouds the colours, again the colours !!! and then the framing  - just WOW..

I am lost for words ....

thank you for sharing

Absolute stunning image.  So much good stuff I don't know where to look first.

 

What class of sky are you under Peter? I would love to try this one next year, but figured my sky might be too washed out to get the detail (or anything!)

Outstanding result on an incredibly difficult target. That's one of the most spectacular OSC images I've seen.

 

Where are you and what sort of skies were you imaging under?

Thank you Niel, and Paul, This one I set up in Spain so the skies are about Bortal 3.... My skies in the UK are also Bortal 3 but it sits much lower down...but to be honest I see no reason to get the same result from here given that I was imaging low down in the muck in Spain.... I would just need to catch it a little earlier....oh and wait for the clouds to clear of course!!

WOW WOW WOW Peter. I saw this go up on astrobin and was amazed! 

Thanks Wyvern...I have to say at first  I wasn't as happy with it as I perhaps should have been,  but I think it was because of the difficulties pushing the process so far.

That's just mind-blowing. Stunning image Peter, worthy of an APOD at the very least.

Thank you
