Description

A new attempt in "cooking fish" ;-)

This time I managed to collect 5 hours of it in almost new-moon conditions, distributed over 2 sessions. And yes indeed, there is more to see than in my previous attempt. The dark eye shows more shades of dark, the 3 galaxies show that all of them are spiral galaxies, not just one, and shark's nebulosity is better pronounced - more light, more detail :-)

I love Cepheus objects because they are the optimal playground for DSLRs/OSCs - the ones I use. Any filter will ruin the result, full bandwidth is needed to show the colors of those clouds. Too bad they require so much patience....

Clear skies!!
