The Wizard Nebula
CHRIS HEAPY, MACCLESFIELD, 2 OCTOBER 2015 Chris says: “The Wizard Nebula is a difficult object to observe visually, requiring very dark skies and an OIII filter. However, the power of an amateur CCD camera with narrowband filters is able to capture it in its full glory, as shown here. I love the colours and the ‘wizard’ is clear to see!”
Equipment: Atik 490EX CCD camera, Tele Vue-NP127is apo refractor, 10-Micron GM 2000 HPS-II mount, Astrodon 3nm Ha/ OIII/SII filters, Baader 7nm Ha filter.
