NGC 2392 Eskimo Nebula (130mm 60Da).jpg
The Eskimo or Clown Face Nebula, aka NGC 2392, in Gemini. Taken from home March 1, 2013, under excellent conditions, using the AP 130mm apo at f/6, no field flattener and the Canon 60Da at ISO 800 for a stack of 4 x 8 minute exposures, all on the Sky-Watcher AZ-EQ6 mount in for testing, and the Starshoot autoguider with PHD Guiding 1.14 software. It all worked great. The camera shutter was controlled by the telescope hand controller. The little galaxy at bottom is UGC 3873 at Mag. 14.4.
