Barnard 303

Hallo fans of dark nebulae and emissions nebulae, the area around NGC 6559 and IC4685 show us some interesting objects:
  • Barnard 302 and 303 (my name is "the little snake"),
  • SH2-31 and 32, a planerary Nebula Min 1-41 and
  • some dark nebula (LDN ).
I took 4 pictures à 20 minutes with a Canon EOS 350 DA and a H-alpha Filter 13 nm from Astronomics. I used a 200/1000 Newton to capture this photo. For a larger version click here, please: http://www.astroholgi.de/data/storage/attachments/12570889944484.jpg
