IC 2948, also
known as the “Running Chicken Nebula”, is usually
described as “almost featureless emission nebula”.
True as it may be in RGB images, this emission nebula is
very rich in details and with a remarkable 3D appearance
in narrowband images.
The difficulty to see the "chicken" does nor diminish the
beauty of it.
Taken with a CDK 20" f/6.8, STX 16803, Exposure time: 12.5
hours (Ha: 5.5 hours; OIII: 5.5 hours; RGB 1.5 hours -only
for the stars).
