After what seems like ages and ages I managed to get the scope out last night. Turned out to be quite a lovely night under the stars with fairly good seeing.


I decided to have another go at NGC7822 as I love the contrast between the light star-lit centre and the dark obscuring dust. It's quite low at the moment in the early part of the evening and I had to wait whilst it emerged from my neighbour's tree. I managed just over 2 hours of data (3 minute shots).


I'm much happier with this effort than my previous one. I'm still amazed at the detail you can pick out, especially the pillars and filaments emerging from the edge of the nebula. And I always love a bit of cosmic dust. Quite amazing!
