Description

A very faint and difficult target to image. At a magnitude of 8.08 WR 134 is a variable Wolf-Rayet star located around 6,000 light years away from Earth in the constellation of Cygnus, surrounded by a faint bubble nebula blown by the intense radiation and fast wind from the star - Wikipedia

Due to not-so-kind amp glow from the Panasonic sensor in the ASI 1600mm Pro cooled CCD camera that Flat frames would not work I only used bias calibrated dark frames to get rid of the amp glow with no need for flats. This camera is set at the factory with a fixed offset of 50.
