390 minutes total exposure – 6 hours 30 minutes


Imaged August 3rd, 2018 and July 7th, 8th and 9th, 2019 from Dark Sky New Mexico at Rancho Hidalgo (Animas, New Mexico) with a SBIG STF-8300M on an Astro-Tech AT12RCT at f/8 2432mm.




This object is brighter in OIII but with the monsoon season here, it will be some time before I can collect the data.
