Pickering’s Triangle

It’s September, too bad, wasn’t able to do much here.  I started capturing the Pickering’s Triangle last June 26, 2019 and ended July 7, 2019.   Taken hundreds of photos but ultimately used 270 frames.  80 Ha, 90 O3 and 100 S2 using the Astronomik narrowband filters.

About the Pickering’s Triangle, it is part of the Veil Nebula.  It  consists of 3 major parts, the western, eastern veil nebula then the pickering’s triangle.

Funny thing here is when my daughter saw this image.  She immediately suggested that the title should be “Fire and Ice” which makes sense because of the color.
