Description

This one has always fascinated me: the reflection nebula vdb152 in cepheus.

It is really really faint and difficult to image, especially from my quite light polluted backyard in Werne, Germany. Even after 10hours of integration, the stacked image showed almost no nebulosity details at all. Needed to stretch the hell out of that image to reveal details. I've also integrated 100x120 HA. Unfortunately my poor ZWO HA Filter causes some really huge reflections around bright stars which were difficult to control.

With almost 13hours of exposure, its the longest exposure i've taken yet.
Im pleased with the overall outcome.

150x120L, 50x120 R/G/B each and 100xHA
