Some areas of the sky are just inherently beautiful. I particularly like areas where there are contrasts. That can come from different types of objects, different colors, objects at different distances, etc. The last couple of weeks I have been working on one such area around NGC 6914. It has nicely contrasting emission nebulae (Red) mixed with reflection nebulae (Blue). NGC 6914 itself is a reflection nebula. There are also nicely contrasting star colors in the image from deep deep orange to yellow to blue. I finally got enough data together to actually try processing it.
Here are my occasional thoughts on Astrophotography, Astronomy, and whatever else catches my attention.
