  • Processing:  Taken  in MaxIm v4 using CCDCommander.  Reduced in CCDSoft.  Aligned with RegiStar.  Combined sub-exposures with Ray Gralak's Sigma Clip.  DDP in MaxIm. One iteration of deconvolution to Luminance in CCDSharp.  RGB combine in MaxIM. LRGB combine, levels, selective blur, saturation boost in Photoshop.
  • Name:  IC1283, IC1284, NGC6589, NGC6590 (NGC6595 and IC4700)
  • Type:  Emission and Reflection Nebula
  • Constellation:  Sagittarius

  • Notes: IC1283 and IC1284 may be the same object - the main red emission nebula in the upper left center of the image, however the coordinates for IC1283 are near the light blue area on the lower right edge of IC1284. NGC6589 is the bright blue reflection nebula on the upper right, whie NGC6590 the bright blue reflection nebula on the lower left. (With the many duplicates in the catalogs, NGC6590 is also the same object as NGC6595 and IC4700!)
