Swindon, Wiltshire. UK

Telescope service 8″ Boren simon power newtonian, Skywatcher NEQ6 pro mount,Atik 383L+ camera, motorised filter wheel and Astronomik filters.

Emission nebula in the constellation Cepheus. Part of the much larger sharpless SH2-171 nebula.

Lots of dust lane and small ionisation fronts make for an interesting image.

Have to try some more objects on the sharpless catalogue if they are going to work as well as this.

Used coordinates of RA 00h 02m 00s DEC 67 deg 12′ 00″ to find this nebula.

Nights closing in fast now so all data collected on a single imaging session.

Finally a good crystal clear night. No imaging possible last week with Storm Bertha causing mayhem.

Ha/oiii/oiii image with 4 hours and 30 minutes of data. 13 x 10min & 14 x 10min oiii unbinned.
