Description

After Stacking 8 hours of RGB Data, i knew, what i have started: Besides some very faint traces there was nothing of Sh2-240 visible. All I could use it for was star colors.

This picture was made with kind support of my dear friend Wolfgang Lintner. He not only shared his equipment with me (this way i was able to run double exposures most of the time), he also gave me advice during my countless attempts to process the data.

I attempted to preserve the illusive nature of this faint object.
