Description

Finally the first relatively clear sky after New Year and I wanted to go for something new. Since the sky was not the best and the moon was up half the night, I aimed straight up. I have already imaged most of the nebulas in Cassiopeia but I found this less well-known nebula in Perseus. I think I see some tusks in there and it reminds me of a Wild Boar face - but that may be only me.

This is a HaRGB image. I managed to grab 29 x 10 min of RGB with the Esprit 150 and ASI 071, and 37 x 10 min of Ha with the Esprit 100 and ASI1600, sitting side by side. I aim to visit in again on a clearer night.
