Description

The little bright nebula in the upper left with a dust lane is the Sh2-242. Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM with Astrodon 5nm Ha and Red Continuum filters. Atik460ex(mono). 10min x 28=4h40m (Ha) + 10min x 25=4hr10m (Red Continuum). The condition was very marginal because of thin clouds and smoke from the Rough Fire near Fresno. The continuum frames were used to suppress the stars slightly and bring out the nebula.
