NGC1893 - The Tadpole Nebula - 5+ Hours Worth

Took a gamble on the weather last night and I think it paid off.

 

Managed to get a good 3 hours worth of data on this target before the fog rolled in, albeit under a Full Harvest Moon.

I was a bit apprehensive, as it had rained quite heavily an hour before I started imaging, and being on the balcony, there was a lot of residual dripping from above!

 

All turned out well (IMHO) and I ended up with a total of 5.3 hours worth of 120s subs to play with today.

 

Integrated and combined as HOO in Astro Pixel Processor before processing in Photoshop CC.

Hi Tony,  I like both versions but the first is my favourite. It looks deeper and more mysterious. Which way does your balcony face?     The back of my house faces west which is fine although Manchester city centre lies in that direction, about 8 miles away. I don't have and eastern view but have reasonably unobstructed views north and south.

Hi Gary,

The only real view I've got from the balcon is NE through to South, the main view though is directly East. Some quite big Trees block the view South though. Also, the Roof of the balcony pretty much takes Zenith out of view also. It's a limited windows of about 3-4 hours imaging in an Easterly direction.
