Secondo Campo astronomico invernale organizzato dal Gruppo Astrofili Catanesi presso il rifugio Margio Salice (monti Nebrodi) 06-08/12/2015.
La bellissima nebulosa dell'Anima (Soul Nebula) IC1848.
Da anni tentavo di fotografarla, ma ogni volta c'era un impedimento.
Finalmente, favorito dalle lunghe notti di dicembre e dalla t= 6°C, ho acquisito un buon numero di frame che mi ha permesso di elaborarla fortemente, anche perchè questa nebulosa è davvero molto debole.
Ho cercato di dare il massimo con i mezzi a mia disposizione.

2nd astronomical winter camping organized by the Amateur Astronomers Group Catanese at the shelter "Margio Salice" (Nebrodi) 12.06-08.2015.
The beautiful Soul Nebula (IC 1848).
For years trying to photograph it, but every time there was an impediment.
Finally, I favored by the long nights of December and from t = 6°C, I have acquired a large number of frames that allowed me to process it strongly, partly because this nebula is very faint.
I tried to do my best with the means at my disposal.
