Description

I spent several nights in January this year trying to capture that nebula and failed all in all - only one night was good/dark enough to get some reasonable data from my light polluted garden. Will definitely come back to it asap with appropriate filters and a dark and clear sky (hopefully). This is what I got out from that night, looks promising and makes me hungry for more ... I simply love this object.
