I actually gathered this data in June/July of this year and finished processing it in August. I've just been too lazy to do a complete write up and post it. It was a very fun and interesting target to image. There aren't a whole lot of images out there of that I could find. It makes for a good LRGB target and I added in some Ha to really bring out the interesting bits. Overall I am pretty pleased with how this one came out.

Cool! another SH object to hunt down! Thanks for the view. Very intriguing. Hmm...although it looks like I'll have to wait til next spring/summer.
