This is a combination of 4 images, each of 480 seconds
The images were taken with a Pictor 416 attached to an Meade 10" F/2 telescope.
A Pictor 201XT was attached to an ETX for guiding.
Each of the images was corrected with a dark frame and a flat field.
After combining, the image was logarithmically stretched.
The second image is the same basic image, but with a Gaussian Equalization enhancment applied with a wide range of pixel values included. This provides a view of fainter nebulosity that is frequently missed in images of the Swan Nebula
