Description

Shooting narrowband through the hazy bortle 8 skies of Lahore

This object was getting away this season and one night gave the opportunity to capture it.

Shot on both sides of meridian with first time successful automatic meridian flip in APT.

Dewed out in last hour so had to call off the session.

Western Veil Nebula, the Witch's Broom ... with star 52 Cygni

Part of Pickering's Triangle also visible.
