Elephant Trunk Nebula



The star forming region is about 2400 light years away. The rim of the Elephant Trunk is a cloud of dust and gas which glows because of a very bright and large star.

The integration time is about 8 hours in Ha, OIII, and SII. PixInsight's "Pixel Math" did a wonderful job of maintaining the star color. I used the Hubble pallet (SHO) for color. The diffraction spikes are a result of using Optec's Fast Focus with the split wiring. I really like the effect.

I'm still collecting photons of the Wizard, Pacman, and California Nebula. We're expecting snow tonight.      George
