Sharpless 288 (IC 466, LBN 1013 and others) is a bright HII region located approximately 13,400 light-years away in Monoceros.


Luminance – 24x600s – 240 minutes – binned 1x1

RGB – 12x300s – 60 minutes each – binned 2x2


420 minutes total exposure – 7 hours


Imaged January 24th, 25th, 28th and 29th, 2020 from Dark Sky New Mexico at Rancho Hidalgo (Animas, New Mexico) with a SBIG STF-8300M on an Astro-Tech AT12RCT at f/8 2432mm.




I also captured 11 hours of Ha but this object is brighter in broadband so I did not use any of it.
