Description

An extremely faint pair of objects from Shropshire skies; well who doesn't like a challenge? Discovered less than 40 years ago this is around 30 hours O111 and around 20 hours of Ha, both taken in 2x2bin 1200" frames. This made my image scale around 5"/p. All frames taken between 28th and 30th October. This has been cropped slightly.
Once i get my larger scope back up and running I would like to try this again at 0.7"/p.
