Images of the Perseus Milky Way and Barnard B20?

Posted by Jeremy at 18:00 on 2012 Dec 21

I am looking for an image of the Perseus Milky Way showing the dark nebulae Barnard 20 (B20) to illustrate an article. There is a DSS image here: http://www.darkerview.com/scripts/query.php?B20, but Id rather use a wide-field image, preferably by a BAA member. The object is quite large, about 1 deg wide, hence a wide-field view would be best. It is located at RA 4h 37min Dec 50 58. The cluster Berkeley 67 is nearby. There is quite a bit of dark nebulosity in the neighbourhood, some of which is more obvious than B20.Do let me know if you have an image. Maybe you have been photographing the Perseus Milky Way with a DSLR and have captured it without realising.Go well!Jeremy

I have found that Martin C Germano of California has a fine image which shows part of B20:http://martingermano.com/Berk67_Sh2-211.htmGo well!Jeremy

I am delighted to report that Denis Buczynski has obtained a cracking colour image of this region last night, combining DSLR and CCD imaging. Many thanks, Denis, for your help.Go well!Jeremy
