Hi All,

Early September I had the pleasure to spend a week in the south of France where I could enjoy clear skies with close to no light pollution (SQM 21.4).
One of the targets on my wishlist was VDB141. Here you can see the result. I also took some pictures of NGC7331, NGC891 and M74 (with SN2013ej). High resolution pictures and more details can be found on my website. Thanks for looking.

Thanks all for the compliments.
I must agree, this VDB141 was a difficult image to process. I'm sure it can do with double or triple the number of lights. But when I'm out for only a few nights to an astrophotography party I carefully need to plan what and for how long I will image an object. Returning home after one week with having captured only 1 object seemed a little bit strange to me.

A very tricky and obscure object done superbly well.
