Taken over several years this image is a composite of Hyperstar I, Sky 90 and Hyperstar III data.

Comprising many hours of RGB and H-alpha exposure, as well as many hours in processing all this data in a consistent way, the Parker/Carboni imaging team bring you a very busy region in the Constellation Cepheus – centred on the well known Cave nebula.  In this image you can see a lot of emission nebulosity, many dark nebulae, and dotted around the place several little reflection (blue) nebulae.  I think enough data has now been taken of this region for me to tick this one off the list and to move on to something new.
