IC1396 in Ha


IC1396 region, which contains the Elephant”s Trunk Nebula taken in Hydrogen Alpha wavelength.  Image consists of 12×1200 seconds subs giving a total exposure time of 240 minutes.  Imaged with a SXVR-H36 camera through a Takahashi FSQ-106EDX4 f/5 Quadruplet mounted on a Paramount MX+.  Quick process with DSS and tweaked in Photoshop CS.
