Description

Actually, I just wanted to test my new Apo but then I decided to spend a few hours to capture this beautiful object. Unfortunately, at the moment there were only 2 hours Halpha but the result is impressive. Was taken with my TS Apo 115 @ 632mm focal length with an Asi 1600mm-c on an IOptron Cem60.
