Hi Rog,

I can't find out a lot about this nebula! What Mag is it supposed to be. It's also very small estimates vary between 3" and 6" :shock:

I've been looking at images taken with SBIG with 7 minute subs and they are no better than your image.

So hats off to you mate! once again the Atik / Fast Star combination seems to be working wonders...

Nice one

The central star is at the 11th mag , but the main nebula is much fainter , the outer nebula is very faint prob mag 30 , and does need excellent seeing , i have managed if you look closely to capture small parts of the more defined nebula in the outer part, but hopefully with my new camera when i get it , this image will improve a lot,
