Description

Sharpless 2-88 is a region of diffuse nebulae, a star forming region about 7800 light years away from Sol. Processed with PixInsight 1.8, post-processing done in Photoshop CC.

I've made a mistake using incorrect distance between corrector and camera sensor, apparently it also caused my original plan to image with OAG to fail and I had to use guidescope instead. The corners were really distorted, but despite that (and limited imaging time), I decided to publish the result.
