About this image

The fabulous Kelling ESP in Norfolk has now passed. It was for me. The best week of the year. 

Clear skies aplenty, and darker than at home.

M27 is one huge planetary nebula that I wanted to capture, from a good dark sky. Tuesday evening and into the night. The skies were clear and good enough for me to gather enough data to do M27 justice.

As you can see. I have started to bring out the outta hydrogen shell. But I really need more skies to gather more data
