NGC281 (Pacman Nebula)

NGC281 is also known as the Pacman Nebula. This was my second attempt with this target, but my first with narrowband filters.

I tried to do a blend and get an RGB look with this. I, however, do not remember the exact pixel math formulas I used to get this result.

I’ll try again in the future to add more data to this and see if I can come up with more details on this image. Maybe even add some RGB data for star color.

IC1396 (The Elephant Trunk Nebula)

IC1396, also known as The Elephant’s Trunk Nebula, is a region full of installer gas and dust. Elephant’s Trunk Nebula is a star-forming region with several young stars.

This was my first attempt at a Hubble Palette false-color image. It’s not exactly a perfect representation of an SHO image, but I’m quite happy with how this came out.

I did not do a write-up on this target yet, but I will do it soon. This is my third attempt with this target, the previous attempts are documented below
