The Dark Shark

After over 6 weeks without a break I finally got some clear sky. Also no moon so decided to try my very first Dark nebula.


The weather did not really co-operate and between passing clouds, me forgetting what to do and some technical issues because of a new imaging PC this ended up at only 3.5 hours. I think it would need at least double that to start bringing structure to the nebula. But at least its a start and some of the nebula is showing. Not sure why the brightest stars are bloated?

C & C appreciated. 


Looks great. The 2600 certainly brought out the dark structure. I wouldn't worry too much about the stars, most of the images I have seen of this target have large halos around the stars and are bloated to an extent.
