Star forming region NGC 3576 does look a bit like the Statue of Liberty is soaked in bleach and flipping us the bird if you look closely. This years attempt is a vast improvement on previous tries and the current avalanche of these natural colour images is due in part to the improvements to the Nex Dome observatory here thanks to Sidereal Trading but also the recent acquisition of a QHYCCD 247C One Shot Colour camera which is the best performing colour camera I’ve had to date.

Taken with Celestron 11″ RASA
34 x 120s Hydrogen Alpha w/ ZWO1600 MM
91 x 30s Colour w/ QHY 274C
