NGC 2242
PN G170.3+15.8

NGC 2242 (PN G170.3+15.8, PK 170+15.1) Planetary Nebula in Auriga. Taken over several nights in Jan.
and Feb. 2015. Imaged with CCD Labís Q285M camera and a Celestron EdgeHD 9.25 at f10, on a Losmandy
G11/Gemini mount. 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 (HA+OIII):(R+Ha):(G+OIII):
(B+OIII) (min) = (270+315):(64+270):(64+315):(64+315). This image is displayed at 0.57 arc-seconds
per pixel. Captured with Nebulosity, calibrated, sigma combined in Iris with other processing using
PixInsight LE and Photoshop CS. North is up.

This one is really nice! It would also be worth doing IC 2149.
