Description

Sharpless 2-205 is a faint* emission nebula in the constellation of Camelopardalis. This is data from the DSW facility in NM. It was captured over several nights between 13 and 24 October 2017.

* The online catalogue I found listed this as 'midrange' for brightness. If that is so, I wouldn't want to be going much fainter!
