Description

This nebula is very low from where I live. Its below the trees most of the night, but there is about a 2 hour window when it is over the lake - about 25 Degrees - and I can image it. Unfortunately, the lake has a some moisture over it and there is a smoke warning on my sky clock from the nearby forest fires. However, surprisingly we did have a lot of clear nights that allowed me to get over 13 hours of narrowband. I pushed the processing a bit - I usually do :)

Taken from June 20th until July 9th, 2018.
