No, nothing to do with Soul music in California, rather the Soul and California nebulae that I imaged last night. I captured 30 x 300 second exposures of the soul nebula in SII, this was added to the Ha data that I captured earlier this month – it was used to create this Bi colour image.
I did not bother to capture any OIII images as the moon does interfere with this filter unlike the Ha and SII, I’ll wait until I get a clear moonless night for that.
I then turned my attention to NGC1499 the California nebula, also in the constellation of Perseus. I gathered 34 x 300 second exposures in Ha before calling it quits at about 4am due to mist and fog rolling in.
Really glad of that comfy chair, I also had to put the heater on low in the warm room – winters a coming.
None of this imaging however would of taken place – if it had not been for a car accident and the queuing traffic it caused , this stopped me getting to this months meeting of the Somerset Levels Stargazers, sorry guys.
