Sharpless 2-9: Part of the Rho Ophiuchi Nebula


This image was taken with the Hyperstar 3 equipped Nexstar 11GPS on 8/15/09 under the relatively dark skies of Dewey, AZ. When I shot this object, I was trying to capture Sharpless 2-9. What I got was a part of the Rho Ophiuchi Nebula, the blue part, which is known as IC 4604. The whole nebula will take a large mosaic of shots. At least this is a start.


The camera used was the modified Canon Rebel 1000xs. This image is a stack of over a hundred 25-second ISO-1600 subs taken with Nebulosity 2 and stacked in Deep Sky Stacker.
