When I began acquiring this object I was not aware of its difficulty. The light pollution only allowed me a few useful hours every night. During 15 nights I completed more than 24 hours of exposure to get an acceptable signal, although I did not get many details. The signal obtained in each shot was very small. Acquisition and processing have been a very good experience. LX50 (=680m), RX18 (270m), GX18 (270m), BX18 (270m). Start 2017/08/16. End 2017/09/13.
