Hubble’s Variable Nebula- December 3, 2016

Scroll down to content

I’ve started the acquisition of frames for a long-term animation. The subject is one of the more dynamic deep-sky objects around: the Hubble’s Variable Nebula.

More about this object can be found HERE.

My first shot was acquired in poor conditions, with bad seeing and rather cold temperatures (only -8 degrees Celsius).

I’ve also observed the nebula together with my brother-in-law through the eyepiece at 60x with the 14 inch scope. Only the brightest part of the nebula, of a triangular shape and uniform luminosity, was easily detectable.
