This is an object that I've never imaged before and indeed never heard of until it was suggested to me by Sakib Rasool. Certainly not many images of it around. This is only Ha at present but colour should follow eventually.

Interesting target, Steve. I'll be interested to see it in colour!

yeah nice 1. The image holds up really well when zoomed in. like Rick, would be interesting to see some colour.
I never never seen this object before, thanks for imaging it and posting :thumbsup:

New one on me too.

When you convert it from RAW, does it become roasted or tif?

Nice to see something new.
What is the RA and Dec of this one?
31-05-2012, 05:04 PM
Thanks for all the nice comments. Greg, it's at 15 54 36.5, -54 08 43. I always include the RA and Dec in the image caption.

Interesting target there Steve and abundantly clear as to why it has that name.

Just think Steve, when you have completed this image with colour you will be able to say "Bean there done that" :P
Great field really.

Ha ha. Yes I think colour will look good if I can get the balance right. Haven't been doing too well on that lately
Yes it's a new one on me Martin and one of the few objects that looks like its namesake. On searching I did find a few images of it, even one on IIS a few years back but there certainly aren't many.

The fair trade good bean is great for our brains and the kids who get to school. I'm stoked on fresh ground at 5am. The claim the aroma is just a tease can be false if you've got a good snifter. Steve, you obviously have! If it wasn't a coffee bean I'd be going for a cattle tick but I'm a dairyman's daughter, at home in the Milky Way. ;) I'm impressed and looking forward to future sniffs. Flat White please. Kate.

Thanks Kate. I'm not expecting the colour version to be coffee coloured. I'm not sure what colour a cattle tick is.

Did someone say "coffee? I'm in.
I'll have to search visually - RCW98 in Norma. 15 55 34, -54 39 00

Looking forward to the completed image. Interesting looking field.

Not sure how easy it is visually. A nebula filter would be essential I think.
Thanks Paul. I hope it lives up to your expectations. Hopefully next dark sky period.
