Description

Very few images of this object and even more if you look at it in widefield mode. This little faint neb  is locatd in Cygnus under the watch of 80Cyg and surrounded by NGC7086 & NGC 7150. Ha signal was rather on the weak side where as O3 responded quite well (for O3) and S2 was unsurprisingly weaker than Ha. People under decent skies could get excellent results. As usual faint stuff under Sqm 18.4 is not an issue ;), well, until you have to process the data
