Description

LBN 381 is located in the constellation of Cygnus. It is around 100 x 30 arcminutes in dimension (source: High Energy Astrophysics Science Archive Research Center). I cannot find any information regarding its distance from Earth. The most intriguing thing I found from my Internet search is that London Bus Route 381 travels between Peckham and Waterloo - covering a distance of some 8 miles.

Data for this object were captured between 1 and 15 August 2018, from a remote imaging rig (located in Spain) that is jointly owned and operated by Barry Wilson and me.

Capture details are as follows:

Telescope: Takahashi FSQ 106
Camera: QSI 683 WSG
Filters: Astrodon 5nm
Mount: 10 Micron GM1000HPS

Ha: 35 x 1200s
Lum: 27 x 600s
Red: 24 x 600s
Green: 24 x 600s
Blue: 24 x 600s

A total of 28.2 hours exposure.
