30x600" exposure (5 hrs) with SBIG11000 and Ha Baader filter, with Nikon 300 mm f/2,8 APO telephoto lens, form the very good sky of Colle dell'Agnello (Italian Alps). SQM 21,5+, Bortle 2. Interesting area, that shows a lot of details aside of the well known "Tulip" Nebula in the middle. Note the wonderful "lace" structure in the lower left corner!
