Another new discovery by Marcel Drechsler and Xavier Strottner, this time in the constellation Aquila. Extremely faint, and with an intriguing morphology. Despite capturing over 17 hours of OIII at bin 4x4 we haven't managed to extract any significant OIII signal, so this is Ha only.
Initial Discovery: Marcel Drechsler and Xavier Strottner
Data Capture: Peter Goodhew
Image Processing: Marcel Drechsler
Great teamwork
