Description

NGC7048 was (and is) a quite interesting subject, in more ways than one a sibling of NGC7139, and would have deserved more FL and a good seeing night to tease out more detail and have the potential to be an outstanding picture. As it happens, I was pretty happy with the original result and also in haste to move to other subjects and so passed on the chance to overhaul it, as I actually did for other subjects. I guess I was still a rookie back then. You live and learn...
