Well yes, seems this is a busy season for these objects at Cloudy Nights. Here is an image with the IRIS and the Ghosties in the same frame (and everything in between). Image and details are accessed at the link below. Also linked from this page is a larger image (a little bigger than my usual so that some of the features can be seen close to the natural 2.1 arc sec / pix of the optical system). And also linked is an annotated image with the dark regions indicated.





Scope - FSQ-106N at f/5

Camera Atik 383L (Astronomic LRGB filters)


Here is a North down crop (Ghosties right side up).
