LDN 1251 is a Dark Nebula appearing in the constellation Cepheus. It is 978 light years from our solar system. It is 8 light years in size.

This was captured during the west coast fires. I could see the haze before dark while setting up the rig. So I think the quality could have been better if the conditions were better. I plan on getting more data on this target when the skies are clearer.

I spent four days processing this image ( five different revisions). I think I am happy with it now,. for the time being.

This is the updated version of the one I posted a week before. I added an additional 3 hours of Integration.

Mike
