Order Notes

The Swan or Omega Nebula is another emission nebula in Sagittarius, but a bit higher (further north) than the Lagoon and near the Eagle Nebula.  Like the Lagoon, it is very popular with visual observers because of its bright nebulosity and interesting shape.  Through a telescope you typically see just the brightest part of this image and it does look a bit like a swan.

Scope: AT111EDT at f/5.6
Mount: AP Mach1
Camera: QSI683
Exposure: LRGB, 2.5 hrs total


About Greg Marshall

I am a retired electronics engineer and after a few months of enjoying my leisure I began to miss doing product development. My astronomy hobby always needed new solutions to unique problems, so I decided that whenever I came up with a good solution I would try to make it available to others.
