IC 1318 - Sadr Region or The Gamma Cygni Nebula

This is a pretty part of the sky Jim suggested we image.

This data was collected over the course of three nights and consists of three hours per color channel (Red, Green, Blue, and Luminance) for a total of 12 hours of data. Needless to say it was pretty easy to process with all that signal. :-)

IC 1318 - Sadr Region/The Gamma Cygni Nebula

Despite the heat in Texas making the camera's cooler work overtime the observatory continues to purr along gathering good data so as long as there are clear nights we'll keep sending it plans.

Thanks for looking, clear skies everyone.
