Banana Nebula NGC 3199

Little known NGC 3199 AKA Banana Nebula sit just above the Carina Nebula. Doesn't look like a Banana but years gone by the limited view would of seen the bright regions of the nebula shaped like a Banana. This is 11 hours of data shot through 533MC pro using an Askar V at 80mm aperture, flattener, FL 495mm, F6.18. Processed in Pixinsight HSO Foraxx. L-ultimate filter

More data to come if this cloud blanket ever lifts!

When the fainter outer section of 3199 is revealed like this, it does closely resemble the, more commonly imaged feature, Sh2-308 in Canis Major, also a WR bubble, nice job

Thanks Mike! I never knew it was in the WR region but I just looked it up and yes it was probably caused by WR 18.

Thanks!

That's a terrific image. I don't know if I have seen that imaged before. A very photogenic object.

Greg.

Thanks Greg. Overlooked target for sure. This palette worked better than some others I tried for this object.

Paul,
Fabulous image
I had a look in Stellarium for this object and it’s certainly a small faint nebula , you have to zoom in quite a bit to see this little gem
You’ve done extremely well to expose so much detail with a smallish scope relatively short focal length with a OSC dualband set up.
Was this captured under dark skies or Sydney’s horrible Skyglow ?
Well done indeed !!

Cheers
Martin

Thanks Martin!

I took this at home in Sydney. I live in Bortle 4 east to Bortle 5 Zenith, then Bortle 6 west. (near the coast). the L ultimate at 3nm is pretty good with the askar v triplet optics.
