Results of a fruitful week

For the last few days a nice high pressure center has positioned itself in Western Europe. This resulted in a full week with clear skies. Although summer solstice is approaching, having only a few hours per night with dark skies, I still was able to shoot a few objects. Because of the time constraints I mainly took my light frames in bi-color narrowband Ha (R) and O3 (B), creating the G-channel artificially. Below you can see some of the results. More details of the pictures can be found on the corresponding pages.
I’m really enjoying my new toy, the Astrosib RC250 !

And now I need to catch up on my sleep!
