NGC 1975ngc1975


Bright Nebula in Orion
NGC 1975

Mag 7.0



 16/01/15
Part of the group of nebula including NGC 1977 and NGC 1973, all of which are clearly visible in 18mm with UHC filter
This nebula does not seem to be connected to a star brighter than Mag 9.70

10/02/16
Part of NGC 1977, The Running Man Nebula, and centred around a nice double star, faint at Mag 9.7 but with a nice separation
The nebula may be easier to see than it's neighbour NGC 1973 due to the faintness of these double stars
 Excellent contrast in 18mm, with pin sharp views of the stars, a fantastic eyepiece which I should use more!
