Description

After 6 months of bush fires followed by torrential rain finally I could bring my gear out and re-open the pump shed observatory in my back yard and I only had to deal with my neighbours' mega watt party lights and 100 inch LED TV. So Narrow Band it had to be. The start of a much larger project in OIII, HA and SII this is part of the first 6 panels under fair conditions. I was going to do Herschel's Ray but this caught my eye in Stellarium and I was mesmerized by the potential of the field.
