To all,
Here's a small piece of The Jellyfish Nebula, IC 443.
ST10 on a 12" reflector @ f/9
12 x 10 minutes in Ha ( 6 nm)

Comments welcomed,

That's a wonderfully detailed image, great job bringing out the fainter strands. I was debating this weekend's target possibilities (now that I've got Ha fever) and your image might have steered me that way!
Thanks for the inspiration,
Larry Durst

Nice shot! You have a lot of detail.

Wonderful shot Dan, excellent detail on the nebulosity!
Question, what brand filter are you using? I was looking around for some of these Ha filters, but all I've seen are 10nm and higher, no 6nm as you mention...

Thanks for sharing, and keep it up! wink
