Description

Another HDD-Discovery. Did some research on this object today and searched through my archives and found: this faint version of the Fireworks Galaxy done with the Canon 6D. Shot excactly one year ago on 2017´/08/26. Applied some reprocessing on it. I guess this is the next object to be targeted with the 10" SCT LX200 ACF.

Here is the closeup version of the Fireworks Galaxy:
