The Ghost Nebula, taken with a DSLR camera!

At first I thought the picture would certainly be nothing, because most great shots of the fine mist structures are usually obtained with a CCD camera. Encouraged by my two Astrofriends Thomas and Stefan, I finally started with ISO400 and 12min. I collected 5h light and was very surprised that some fog structures appeared.
