Description

Had an hour of Astro dark so took the OIII during this 60 minutes. The Ha was shot during Nautical dark. Not ideal but the sky was clear.
Minkowski 2-55 is a rarely seen PN in Cepheus. I've only seen 2 other images from amateurs on Google. Only 45 minutes in both channels, but at least it's an image.

For SGPro's Mosaic wizard the image center is:

RA: 23h32m12.5s

DEC: 70(degrees) 24' 17.14"

Rev B: Cropped version. Would be a good target for a larger scope.
