First Image of 2022 was created by michael_murphy

I took advantage of the clear skies on Wednesday to try a mosaic of IC 443 the jellyfish nebula.
I manually set the co-ordinates hence the 'generous' overlap.  Next time I'll try the mosaic function in NINA.

Each sub was 2 hours of 5 minute exposures taken in Ha.

Here are the two individual images
  
and the combined.
 

Now I have to read up on the process and do a proper job on it.

Regards,

Michael.

Hi Michael, 

You always impress with what you produce under light polluted skies. This is a brilliant image and the object definitely looks like a jellyfish. 

Clear skies and looking forward to seeing more of your images throughout 2022.

Darren.

IC 443 looks particularly impressive here, Michael. 

Thank you for producing it to us. 

I know it's in Gemini. 

Clear skies from Aubrey.

Hi Paul,

I'm using an Atik 414-Ex with a Baader 7mm Ha filter on a Skywatcher Blackdiamond ED80.
