This is one of the many widefields that reside on my disk and wait for somebody to process. In the often foggy November nights the HEQ5 and camera is set up fast and if lucky it can go until late (or early). I tried to push Ha not too much, as the bluish nebula in IC405 gets lost othewise. Barnards dark nebula B29 on the right side. Eos 600da set to Iso400
