Description

So I saw that Van had shot this target, and I figured what the hell. Well after 3 moonless nights, this is all 5 hours and a UV/IR filter could get me from the middle of Fayetteville, Arkansas.

So reflection nebula might just not be an option without monochrome or one of those optolong filters. I dont know. Should just stick to galaxies for now I guess. What a let down.

However, I had no idea how big it is. Wow, if I could just pull it out. It is there. I can see it in the picture, but getting in out requires so witch's magic or something.
