Spent quite a bit of time working with the Iris nebula - NGC7023. Didn't turn out quite as well as hoped, but pretty nonetheless. 120 stacked frames of 30s to 50s with the focal reducer, combined with the non-focal reducer image of the core I made on 6th August. Upsized slightly as an experiment.

Location: Curdridge, Southampton, UK. 51N 15W.
