Description

VdB 141, the Ghost Nebula (also Sh2-136) is a reflection nebula located in the constellation Cepheus near the cluster NGC 7023. The Ghost name is apparent in this tighter framing with North down. The Ghost nebula is considered a globule (cataloged CB230) and is over 2 light-years across. There are several stars embedded, whose emissions make the nebula shine in brownish colour. (based on Wikipedia)

This is an 8.2 hr LRGB taken at D.A.R.C. Observatory, Mercey Hot Springs, CA 6/30/16, 7/2/16, 7/5/16.
First light using APM-Riccardi Model 1 1.0x flattener (with ML16200).
