Taken Oct. 6, 8, 13 and Oct 15, 2012. Imaged with CCD Lab’s Q285M camera and a Celestron EdgeHD 9.25
at f10, on a Losmandy G11/Gemini mount. The L subframes were 12 and 15 minutes binned 1x1, while the
RGB subframes were 4 minutes binned 2x2 resulting in the following total exposures L:R:G:B (min) =
390:68:68:68. Captured with Nebulosity, calibrated and sigma combined in Iris with other processing
using PixInsight LE and Photoshop CS. North is up.
