Description

Extremely faint IFN with the shape of a (lying on its side) angel. Although it is nicely located for my latitude (riding high all night), it its above the light dome of London. Taken over 5 clear nights in a row (angel miracle!) in late February; it needed more than 10 hrs of L to start showing some features! All exposures acquired with Voyager which also controlled my backyard observatory hardware.
Check the annotated image for the myriad of small PGC galaxies in the background; some of them show detail.
