Gregg,

Nicely done. These faint ones are hard to process. Nice catch on PK 118+2.1.

Subject: [DarkSkyNewMexico] Sh2-170

Hi all:
The monsoons haven't been kind to us here in the desert SW (lots of night time clouds). I was able to get a little over 10 hours worth of data on Sh2-170, an emission nebula in Cassiopeia:

The open cluster Stock 18 makes up some of the stars within the borders of the nebula.

Image data here:

There is also a faint, irregular planetary nebula in the upper left corner of the FOV, PK 118+2.1:
