G42, Pentax 105SDP, STL 11000M, H 4.5 nm, 17x1200, Chieti, 30-12-12.

Le stelle brillavano moltissimo, comunque l’FWMH era molto buono, su 10 s 3.2”

Solo che la luna vicinissima alla nebulosa ha dato molto fastidio creando un gradiente mostruoso e diminuendo il contrasto.

Il gradiente l’ho eliminato con AA5.
