My first attempt at NGC281. described by its discoverer in 1883 E. E. Barnard, as “a large faint nebula, very diffuse. I enjoyed learning more processing techniques to stretch out the details of this faint object. Exposures: ISO1600 @ 1minute, unguided. Deep Sky Stacker stack of 65 Light/Subs, 25 Darks, 25 Flats, 20 Bias. Post processed in Photoshop CC 2015.
