Order Notes

The Tulip is a bit lost in the surrounding cloud of (mostly) hydrogen and dust, but I think you can see where the name comes from.  This is a narrowband image consisting of Hydrogen-alpha, Oxygen III, and Sulfur II emission lines.

The Tulip Nebula is in the constellation Cygnus and about 6,000 lightyears from Earth.  The image was captured in May of 2013 at Wa-chur-ed Observatory.

Scope: AP Starfire 142 at f/7.5
Mount: AP Mach1
Camera: QSI 583wsg at –15C


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.
