The Iris Nebula, also known as NGC 7023, is a reflection nebula located in the constellation Cepheus, characterized by its stunning blue hues and intricate, illuminated dust clouds.
I found unused M45 data while organizing my astrophoto data. The Pleiades data is from 2021 and the telescope sold already.
My 1st version of the beautiful Iris Nebula Caldwell4 with my Baader Travel Companion 95/580.
My 2023 version of the NGC 6914 embedded in HII and 1st light of my new Baader APO 95/580 CaF2 Travel Companion.
Mars and Pleiades on one Astrophoto, i had it in my mind for some time now. Weather was a mess, but it worked.
8,5 hours of RGB and duo narrowband data. Processed with Pixinsight.
NGC 6914 is a reflection nebula located in the constellation Cygnus that appears as a blue glow caused by the scattering of light from hot, young stars by the dust in the nebula.
The Pleiades are an open star cluster composed of young, hot stars and visible in the sky as part of the Taurus constellation.
The picture of the reflection nebula NGC 6914 (blue) was the first attempt with my newly attached flattener without any further optimization.
Reprocessing is worth it. I like the new result.
