Description

The dark shark nebula has been on my list for a long time - it proved to be difficult - my star charts had the nebula placed at the wrong position in cepheus, so i spent many hours finding it.

Furthermore, it's so faint i almost gave up. But, after 22 hours of exposure i finally got it.
