LDN 1235 - Dark Shark Nebula was created by Kinch
Another LDN object. Not usual for me as I always find LRGB data difficult to get and process....I am more at home doing Narrow Band images. More time on this would improve it greatly.....but this is it....for now :-)
Full info (and larger image) as usual on my web site:   www.kinchastro.com/ldn1235---shark-nebula.html

Looks great Brendan. As you say more data needed to overcome that noise from the light pollution but a fine image on what looks to be a difficult dim target.

Yes - it is fairly dim and for sure the more time one can give it ,the better. I wasn't going to put it up (until I did get around to doing more on it) but since it is "LDN" day.......:-)

Yet another superb image from you, Brendan.
Thank you for all your hard work in producing it.
LDN 1235 looks charming and spooky at the same time.
I also greatly admire the colours of the stars.
The tiny galaxy looks excellent too.

Up here in Ireland we going to have quite a bit of rain and heavy cloud for the next 5 days or so.
So enjoy your time down south in Spain, Brendan.

Best regards from Aubrey.

Thank you Aubrey.........most important thing is that we all act responsibly and stay safe. Sometimes I think observing or imaging on one's own can be just the ticket :-)

Goodness me Brendan, it really does look like a shark!!!! Very many thanks for sharing your image here as I would have never have known about this intriguing object.

Your image and your description of it are brilliant. 

Always look forward to viewing your images, and learning about each object you capture. 

Clear skies 

Darren.

Thanks Darren. As usual I get my info for under the images from others - whether it is Google or snippets from other images on the internet (as in this case I think) - so I can take no credit for that part. Glad you like the image though :-)

You're more than welcome Brendan.

I suppose in some way we all get our information from others, as the saying goes 'we're standing on the shoulders of giants', but what you seem to do particularly well with the information available is to make it accessible in a clear and concise way. 

For those reasons I salute you.

Clear skies, 

Darren.

Thanks again Darren. There are a number of people that get notified when I post up a new image on the web site - they have made use of the 'New Image Notification' I put out via email (having signed up on the contact page).

A lot of these people, I am very aware, are not astronomers or astro imagers.....so it is important for me to try give them some idea of what they are looking at, when they view the images.

Sometimes it may be a little too technical but at other times, it is, as you say, concise and relatively easy to understand. At least I try..... :-)

Brendan.
