Iris Nebula

I revisited an old target last night hoping to get more of the dark nebula round it. My initial target was M31, however the skies were very light polluted due to it being relatively low in the sky. Until I get my L-Pro filter, this beauty may have to wait.

As the night progressed and the nebula was getting closer to the zenith, i did encounter some guiding issues which resulted in some frames being dropped from the stack. But all good experience.

The managed to get 2hrs of images before the clouds rolled in and was just finishing my calibration frames when the drizzle started. I have never packed away so quickly in my life!!

Here is the Iris Nebula.
