    This image shows the result of my imaging sessions in the Eifel, Germany during my holidays last year. When I was there we had 2 very clear nights and 2 nights with some high clouds. I decided to go for a dark nebula as these are impossible to image from where I live.

    This image shows the Shark Nebula (LDN1235) in the constellation of Cepheus. This is a nice cloud of gas and dust which is highlighted by the light of nearby stars.
