It's always fun to image a new target and it was worth using a rare trip to a place with much darker skies (Kelvedon Common in Essex) to try something a bit more challenging. This could have done with more exposure but nights are short at this time of year and dawn put a stop to the session. 

29 x 120 second exposures at 400 ISO (58 minutes integration time).
12 x dark frames
79 x flat frames
21 x bias/offset frames (subtracted from flat frames only)

Captured with APT
Guided with PHD2
Processed in Nebulosity and Photoshop 

Equipment:
Sky-Watcher Explorer-150PDS
Skywatcher EQ5 Mount
Orion 50mm Mini Guide Scope
ZWO ASI120 MC imaging and guiding camera
Canon 700D DSLR
