A new take on the Soul nebula

my previous attempt on this cute nebula dates back from 25/12/2019, taken at that time with the 120mm Esprit in mosaic.

Now it was one shot with the Sharpstar 76MM F 4,5 with a focal lenght of 243 mm. The ASI2600MC camera was used in combination with an UV/IR blocking filter.

A little Seahorse in the sky

This is an image of “Barnard 150”, a dark cloud of dust and gas that becomes visible aginst the majestic backdrop of milky way stars and nebulosity. When you turn the image 90° CW then the shape resembles a little seahorse, turning it’s head to the right.

The image was made during two nights 7 and 8 September 2021, using the SharpStar 76mm @ F4,5 and the ASI2600mc, 201x120s or 402 minutes (about 8 hours) under a less-then-optimal sky, bad transparency and sqm 20 so Bortle class 5 or 6 sky.
