The mane event

Katelyn Beecroft from London, Ontario

The Lion Nebula (Sh2–132) is a large, faint emission nebula straddling the border of Cepheus and Lacerta. The imager used a 2.8-inch scope, a one-shot color camera, and two filters: 17 hours of exposure with a dual narrowband filter in Hydrogen-alpha and Oxygen-III, and one hour of luminance data with a UV- and IR-blocking filter.
