Until I looked closely at this image, I didn't notice the very small area of nebulosity top left. After some investigation, it transpires that this small nebula is Abell 1 - The first in the Abell Planetary nebula catalogue.
This is a 2 pane mosaic of NGC7822 - and very apt for Halloween it looks rather like a skull..... This is the mono version of my current project and when it's got colour I'm sure that all skull likenesses will go.
So far this is 15x1800s in each pane, so 15 hours of exposure in total, taken with the Tak FSQ85.
FINALLY - Making some headway on this - I've been plagued with issues and non starters. Had a trip to the UK that took me out for a week..... Hopefully now I can make some progress....... This is only 7 subs in one pane and 5 in the other .... Onwards and upwards....
