Description

This area was recommended to me by a fellow local imager - for its plentiful IFN and central galaxy. I figured the MN190 would suit it nicely, if a bit long. Now seeing the final image, a shorter scope, perhaps the Esprit 100ED would have been more suitable, and I may attempt it again with that scope in the future. This image so far consists of two nights worth of imaging - one of which was rather windy and resulted in many thrown out frames.

I may continue this project throughout autumn if weather improves, to get better colour and more fine detail.

Enjoy.
