One of my first targets with the AP 142 telescope, the Wizard is interesting in that it contains a fair amount of both oxygen and sulfur in addition to the predominant hydrogen. With more OIII and SII data I suspect there would be quite a variety of colors in this image, but it still took special processing to bring out the OIII and SII details and color.

The Wizard (NGC 7380) is in Cepheus and about 7,000 light years from Earth.  Look for his hat, nose, and outstretched hands.  There is also a structure in front of the Wizard that is called “the cauldron”.

Scope: AP 142 at f/7.5
Mount: AP Mach1
Camera: QSI 583 at –15C
Exposure: H-a/OIII/SII, 9 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.
