PN G045.6+24.3

Kohoutek, 1-14 (K1-14, PK 45+24.1, PN G045.6+24.3) Planetary Nebula in Hercules. Taken June 22,
23, 24, 25, 26 and 27, 2011. Imaged with CCD Labís Q285M camera and a Celestron EdgeHD 9.25 at f10,
on a Losmandy G11/Gemini mount and presented with a slight crop and resample. The OIII and H-alpha
subframes were 15 minutes binned 1x1, while the RGB subframes were 4 minutes binned 2x2 resulting in
the following total exposures L:R:G:B = (OIII+HA):(R+Ha): (G+OIII):(B+OIII) (min) = (375+390):
(56+390): (56+375):(56+375). Captured with Nebulosity, calibrated, sigma combined in Iris with other
processing using PixInsight LE and Photoshop CS. North is up.

Very nice image! It's amazing to think that you can image something so small and faint.

Wow I never ever imagined seeing an amateur image of this very obscure planetary nebula! Its surprising how its appearance is vastly similar to a ring galaxy. As always, you never fail to reveal the secret deep that is buried away in old scientific journals and papers and I look forward to your next masterpiece!
