      Description

      The light pollution to the west of the remote observatory is so severe that the selection of targets available after midnight is very limited, I had to plan ahead to some targets.

      I started in May to try to shoot the NGC6888 in the midnight, and although the H and O channels only accumulated 6 hours of exposure, the signal-to-noise ratio was already good, and I was very surprised by the detail after the pi processing.
