Re: Seahorse Nebula


Ian. Good shot. These are ignored by most amateur astronomers, not unreasonably, because they need really dark skies to detect and then a weird skill in seeing them. The camera does a lot better than the eye does on these. These are kind of like Port wines; it takes a bit of getting used to and is an acquired taste. Thanks for showing this. I still am not sure what the best technique is for seeing these dark nebula.

Got a little imaging time in last night. Not great conditions but at least you could see stars. Needs more integration time for sure and some camera tilt in the some where but here is a look at the head of the seahorse nebula a dark nebula in the constellation Cepheus ... Cheers Ian
