Well the Soul Nebula Mosaic anyway. 5 panes in the end. First 4 panes (see below) should have done it but I suspect platesolving failed and I had to do another pane the next night. APP is brilliant at stitching together and blending in panes – even from different sessions.
Sh2-155 is a diffuse nebula in the constellation Cepheus, within a larger nebula complex containing emission, reflection, and dark nebulosity. It is widely known as the Cave Nebula. Sh2 designation because it’s part of the Sharpless Catalog (1959) of 312 HII regions. About 2400 light years from Earth and a stellar nursery.
Narrowband filters really do cut through the murky, light polluted skies of Edinburgh so well. Obviously false colour, has to be for narrowband, but can’t decide which is the best so two different tone mappings: SII Ha OIII -> RGB and Ha OIII SII
First real narrowband image. Strange reflections of the primary, secondary and spider in Ha and OIII images, as well as flats. Mappings were OHS and HOS. SII didn’t add much to either image but object is strong in Ha and OIII.
