Description

IC348, the Atik nebula. Imaged from Belgium with lots of light pollution and a slight haze. I also had lots of problems with the backfocus distance of the corrector on my new ED refractor. The stars are all funny and the image is noisy but I'm happy with the results, given the circumstances.
