Sh2-234 aka IC417
Sh2-234, IC417, sometimes called as "Spider Nebula", in constellation Auriga. H-alpha 22x1200s, binned down 2x2 to boost the sensitivity. Natural color composition from the emission of ionized elements, R=80%Hydrogen+20%Sulfur, G=100%Oxygen and B=85%Oxygen+15%Hydrogen to compensate otherwise missing H-beta emission. This composition is very close to a visual spectrum.
Distance is about 10.000 light years. Image is about 30' wide and covers about 100 light years. Ra 05 hr 28 min 05.9 sec , Dec +34 hr 25 min26 sec
Processing work flow:
Image acquisition, MaxiDL v5.07.
Stacked and calibrated in CCDStack.
Deconvolution with a CCDSharp, 30 iterations, 50% mix.
Levels, curves and color combine in PS CS3.
