Dark space dust

Andy Nowlen

During last night's meeting space dust was mentioned.  My image of IC4604 shows a dust storm that is quite apparent.  The triple star at the center lights this portion of the Rho Ophiucus nebula.  This was taken at a dark site July 10.  No imaging filters were used.  Asi533mcpro and Sharpstar 76mm triplet at 335mm. 3 hours of data were accumulated plus calibration frames.



P.S. Apparently my scope supplies some 'flare' over the brightest stars, when in this configuration.  Oh well.
