Here is the Crescent Nebula in Cygnus. The weather has foiled by attempts to get Ha data so I used some old AP data taken last year, and I could only get some quick color data this year. It needs more color to be richer, that is for sure. Still, it has some decent filament detail in the center. Specs are below. I combined them with Registar.

H-alpha
AP 155EDF f/7
ST-10XME 150 minutes

RGB
ITE 250mm f/4 Mak Newt astrograph
ST-10XME 25:25:25 minutes.; unbinned

Regards,
Tom

I think it looks more like a fetus in the womb. My friend just showed me an image of her sonogram and it looks just like the nebula.

Does anyone besides me think of "2001 - Space Oddessy" after the above comment?

Great photo, BTW.
