IC 1848 also called Soul Nebula is another test for the H-alpha filter. Guiding was good, I took 28 images. But I only worked with 23 images, because the last 5 images were very poor because of dew. Framing isn't that good, I try to fix it, but the SynScan make weird sounds and lose power for three times while 3-Star-Alignment. So I decided to make the images like this, likly a poor framed image than no image at all.
