Planetary Nebula in Gemini RA 07h 25m 35s Dec +29d 29m 26s
Mike Lancaster captured this image of the double lobed planetary nebula NGC 2371/2 on the 8th March 2014. It is a stack of five 150 second exposures taken with a Mallincam Xtreme X2 camera at AGC4, using an MFR5 focal reducer and Astronomik CLS-CCD filter through a 10" Meade LX200 ACF SCT. The images were stacked, cropped and processed in Nebulosity 3, Photoshop Elements 7 and Astronomy Tools. No guiding or dark frames were used.
