Pacman Nebula (NGC 281)

Finally managed to get some h-alpha footage to add to the colour data from October... of the Pacman Nebula or NGC 281 in Cassiopeia.

Unfortunately only got about 1/2 hour of h-alpha. So the colour still is a bit "pink" rather than red.

1000mm f/5.3 Skywatcher MN-190
Canon 300D Modified
