Bogeyman Nebula LDN1622 from Bromley

This is a very faint object and can only just be seen even after a 10min exposure.

For those of you not familiar with this object it is situated on the edge of Barnard's loop on the opposite side to M78. That's why there is so much red in the image.

Been wanting to image this for a while but can never seem to get to astro camp when it is up. So was forced to do it from Bromley with a dirty great tree right in the way stopping me imaging it for 3 hours of the night and then just as it clears the tree it crosses the meridian. :!

Anyway, needs must. This was taken over two evenings in - 2 degrees. Not a lot of data so therefore don't look too close as it is noisy. As always I'd like to get more data on this, but I think a darker sky would be more beneficial.

Ha 12 x 600secs Baader 3nm
RGB 3 x 300 binned per each channel
Atik460EX
WO ZS71
HEQ5
Total 2hours 45mins.

What shall I say :D
Amazing as always! I wish you clear skies so that we can enjoy more images.

So do you plan a summary of your astroyear 2019 on YouTube? Just a quick slideshow? I'd love to see that!

Greetings
Chris

You can see all my images (separated into years and going right back to the rubbish images when I first started in 2008) on my website:

You came a long way since the 08'ers ;-)

This image was published in January Astronomy Now.

Chuffed, and love what they said. Lol - they must have got the info from my Astrobin Link where I said that next door's tree was in the way for 3 hours of the night.
