Hi,

Just processed one panel from the mosaic posted recently.
The nebula reminds kind of deep ocean fish, hence the name;)

First of all, nice image.
Secondly, how on Earth do you locate/frame it?
And finally, how did you even discover its existence?

Thanks guys!

It's in Lacerta. I ran out of targets available from my balcony. So had to be a bit creative in finding them
