Crescent Nebula

Distance: 5000 Light Years

This is a rather rarely shot widefield view of the Crescent nebula and WR134. Since this FOV is mostly consisting of emission nebula, narrowband imaging is necessary for this image. Duo Narrowband filters will work too! Since the area is quite rich of Ha, our focus will be on the fainter O3 in the area. The image below shows the rough field of view of this target.
