A PN named after the two observatories used in the 1953/4 survey that discovered it.

This is just over 5 hours of 20 min Ha subs (3nm Astrodon) with a handful of 3 min subs for the RGB stars. The Ha was added to the R, not that the PN could be seen in the R. It's pretty faint overall so I was happy to have picked out some of the extended Ha regions top and bottom.

NICE! That's a very unusual target, and you portrayed it beautifully.

Thanks for sharing

Very cool. I have never seen this before. Where in the sky is it?

Those stars look perfect.  Wonderful.  Interesting target, though the skill of the imager is the standout here.

Thanks for your comments guys.

Tom, it's now behind the trees !!  It's in Serpens RA 18h54m DEC +06deg 02" or just below and to the right a bit of Altair.

Thanks for the comments guys. I enjoy having a look about for different targets and to see if there is any interesting research or history on them. There wasn't much on this one though and I think I only found 2 or 3 images of it on the web.

Very nice picture of an object I've not seen before. Was this with the MN190 scope?
