Description

A Cave nebula wider field, imaged during 4 nights, with limited transparnecy of the sky, SQM did not go beyond 20,30 and was mostly around 20.  I was surprised to discover this very animated region. Cepheus is an AF's dream, so many beautiful objects! What this constellation misses in visual grandeur is made up 10-fold for photography!
