LDN 673 by Jon Talbot
Jonathan Talbot captured this image of LDN 673 using his Stellarvue SVS130 Astrograph, QSI 583 camera and Astrodon filters on his Paramount MyT mount (unguided); 140min Luminance, 150min Red, 120min Green and 150min Blue.
Jon says, "The first of two CCD images taken at TSP 17 with the SVS130. LDN 673, a dark molecular cloud in the constellation Aquila. It almost looks as if the tentacles will reach out and grab you :). Two interesting objects within the cloud. Herbo Haro object HH32 center right and nebula RNO 109 center left."
