Shark sighted on the horizon...


Recommended Posts

I took advantage of an unexpected clear spell last night and went for the dark nebula LDN 1235 or the Shark Nebula. Having seen pictures of this I wasn't sure how much of it I would capture, so I'm pleased to get what I did. Being quite low down in the north west/north I think I was fighting a bit of murk, but I managed 3 hours of 3 minute lights. Being the second time out after the belt conversion I was pleased to be getting 0.4 - 0.5 RMS all evening.


Processing was pretty difficult...these dark nebulae really do make things difficult...trying to bring out the dark dust as well as keeping everything fairly realistic.
