Abell 6 and HFG 1 - 26.1.2022 at 00.00 - 26.1.2022 at 06.40 Kangaslampi Observation number 104283

Visibility I / V

Erik Pirtala, Warkauden Kassiopeia

Abell 6 and HFG 1 are planetary nebulae on the border of the constellations Cassiopeia and Giraffe. Both subjects are very dim, especially the wider and more diffuse HFG 1. There is also a very dim hydrogen alpha signal in the background.

I exposed this view of two spectacular star deaths for 41.5 hours in the first weeks of January. 17 hours O-III channel and 22.5 hours H-alpha + 2 hours RGB for natural star colors.
