gaze in the Crystal Ball (Halifax)

Finally, the BGO robot imaged NGC 1514 for me. Another planetary nebula. Another RASC Finest NGCs. Also known as the Crystal Ball Nebula in Taurus. Alas, there are some strange artefacts along with a mild gradient on the bottom edge of the image.

RASC Finest NGC the Crystal Ball Nebula in luminance

Luminance only, 60 seconds subexposures, 10 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, Paint.NET. North is up; left is east.


Gathered more data plus hydrogen on 7 Oct '17.
