Sh2-112 LHaRGB

  • Telescope: William Optics FLT 110 mod with FT 3025
  • Camera: Qhy 2pro mono
  • Mount: Skywatcher EQ6 pro
  • Ts finder 8x50 & Meade DSI 1 for guiding
  • Location: Salamina 
 This small but bright nebula is a good object for those with a small field of view. Using a larger telescope will reveal the fine details and structure. The object responds very well with the hydrogen-alpha filter and makes a great HA-RGB image, but you need a lot of color to colorize the nebula. The nebula also responds very well to Sulfur II and Oxygen III, so this is a good one for a color narrowband image. A wider field of view will pick up the nebula around this object as well as the nearby object SH2-115.
