I finally got the time and clear skies I needed on this object to try out my new camera/scope combination (QHY8/Teleskop Service 65mm astrograph). I used many of the tips detailed in the Sky at Night magazine tutorials earlier in the year (star enhancing and hi-pass etc).
Having got this nebula imaged I’m off hunting Pelicans next-door! :-)
