Nebulas in false-colour

Find here a collection of my photos of nebulas taken with narrowband filters. Since the narrow band light is dominating, the color impression is no longer “realistic“. Most of the photos are bicolor or in Hubble palette.

„. More info: see picture page.

Object: The Pac Man Nebula, NGC 281, 12./13./30.09.2016, Borgfeld

Remark: NGC 281, IC 11 or Sh2-184 is a bright emission nebula and part of an H II region in the northern constellation of Cassiopeia and is part of the Milky Way’s Perseus Spiral Arm. This 20×30 arcmin sized nebulosity is also associated with open cluster IC 1590. NGC 281 is also known as the Pacman Nebula for its resemblance to the video game character.
