Description

Sharpless 2-88 appears on a widefield photo hardly detectible as little red smudge on the edge of a milky way cloud, located in Vulpecula, a little north of the Dumbbell. Zoomed in herewith 10" f/4 we see some reflective nebulosity nearby, H-Alpha emission creates interesting color hues. This was very hard to process, as most of H-Alpha here is very weak, and trying to show the structures and dark lanes without pushing noise too much is not easy.
