Telescope: PlaneWave Instruments CDK20
Mount: Software Bisque Paramount ME
Camera: SBIG STL-11000M guided by SBIG Remote Guide Head on Astrodon MOAG, SBIG STLCFW-8, SBIG AO-L
Exposures: Ha = 8x30min, OIII = 8x30min. Total = 8 hours. Binned 1x1
Processing: The LRGB construction was formed with the following: L = (25% OIII, 75% Ha); R
= Ha; G = Avg(Ha,OIII), B = OIII. This is a variation of the bicolor narrowband technique. Data reduction in CCDSoft and Processing in Adobe PhotoShop CS.
This is a very unique look at M27!
