This is a target i wanted to do for some time. Unfortunately, I ran into condensation issues with my camera and could only capture 6.5 hours. ideally, I would have added more Ha. This made the processing difficult. I hope you enjoy.

James, if you click on the link Astrobin will show a little sky map showing where the image plate solves.

Very cool image. Love it.

 

This also shows where it is, with a cool image slider so you can see how the photo fits: http://www.worldwide...30040&wtml=true

 

I'm trying to find out more about this object but it's not often photographed! Could you give me an idea of its magnitude please? I'd love to add it to my list of summer targets but I need to know whether my kit is sensitive enough - it looks like it could be extremely faint.
