Description

A bit of catchup in my processing images from my APM LZOS 130 scope and the ASI2600mm - I've been caught up in trying to get my new Meade 10in ACF scope up and running so returning to a few data sessions from last week. This was a morning filler target which means it's just under 12 hours collected over 6 sessions of around 2hours each before dawn, so low in the sky and in my main light polluted dome so not great data. 

It's an area on the outskirts I haven't imaged before. Has a collection of nebulae with plenty of OIII as here that adds some interest.

Anyway here it is. Stacked in APP and recombined into an SHO TIF final processing in PS.
