Description

Pretty tough object from London. Beautiful area in Lacerta. The background is pretty red but this is natural as the nebula gets its illumination from interstellar radiation known as Extended Red Emission (ERE).
For a proper shot of this area see Bart Delsaert's version: https://delsaert.com/2018/09/18/colourful-lbn-438/

See the annotated version for the many background galaxies towards the north of the frame.
