Description

Rick took this image after using TheSky from Software Bisque to determine that the framing would be nearly ideal.  This image includes three different Ha sources in the constellation of Gemini:  IC443 in the upper left corner, NGC2174 in the lower right corner, and Sh2-247 in the lower middle.  This image clearly shows the full extent of the 2 x 3 degree field achieved by the Takahashi FSQ106N when combined with the SBIG STL-11000M camera.
