NGC 6888 The Crescent nebula

Post by Ian Papworth »

Image of the Crescent nebula in the constellation of Cygnus. Imaged using an Altair hypercam 183c pro and skywatcher 150p. This is 4 hours worth of integration time.

A nice image, you must be pleased with it. Good round stars.

Has anybody here seen it visually? I imagine a big dob would be needed!
