As part of my quest to push the limits of what a small refractor and OSC camera can achieve from a light-polluted city centre, I present my latest experiment: NGC 7822.

I have the same FRA400 and am in awe of what you’re doing with it! I definitely went on a bit of an Urban Astrophotography binge on your website just absolutely gawking at your work. Top shelf, altoghether!

Thanks, this made my day 😎  More Urban Astrophotography content is on the way, including a one year with the FRA400 review!

That is really superb. I'd been thinking of trying this target but all th images I found of it were rather flat and uninteresting. This has just pushed it back to the top of my list.

Thanks, I'd be interested to see your final image once you've tackled it :)
