IC1454 (aka Abell 81) is a planetary nebula located in Cepheus, close to the celestial North Pole. At about 14000 light years distant, it represents a challenging imaging target, mainly due to its small size of 34 arc seconds. The central star is also relatively dim at 18.8 magnitude.

The LRGB image below is my attempt and represents 10.5 hours integration time. It was taken with my Esprit 150.
