Sharpless 2-108 - An Emission Nebula
was taken with the Hyperstar 3 equipped Nexstar 11GPS on 9/09/09 under
the light-polluted skies of Tempe, AZ. The camera used was the
modified Canon Rebel 1000xs. This shot was taken with a Hydrogen-Alpha
filter fitted into the Canon camera. The image
is a stack of over fifty 25-second ISO-1600 subs taken with Nebulosity 2
and stacked in Deep Sky Stacker. I used Nebulosity to split the
stacked image into its three color (RGB) components and used the red
component for this image. Sharpless 2-108 is also know as IC 1318.
