This Tulip Nebula Image image was taken by long-time member Al Ernst

This is a mosaic image of the Tulip Nebula (Sharpless 101) taken from Al's backyard observatory in central New Jersey.
Sharpless 101 is a HII region emission nebula located in the constellation Cygnus and is about 6000ly from Earth.
He used a C14 telescope and a QSI-583 camera with a 6nm Ha narrow band filter. Due to the scope's limited field of view he stitched together two images using five minute subs for each.
Thank Al,
