The Cone Nebula

The cone nebula is actually a farily bright object that did not require a great deal of exposure at f/4 to produce a very low noise image. I used Hydrogen alpha to suppliment the red and blue channels and hardly had to do any noise reduction at all.

I'm loving these diffraction spikes from the newtonian optics.
