New Forest Observatory – Image of the Month

A couple of nights ago I managed to grab 24 x 20-minute subs of the M52 region using the 2 x Canon 200mm prime lenses and 2 x Trius M26C 10-Megapixel OSC CCDs.  I had to shut down for an hour in the middle of the imaging run when a cloud bank came over, and I was not very precise in setting up the frame after the meridian flip which is why the image is a lot narrower than it should be.  Still – “claws” can be seen (just) and the Bubble and M52 came out reasonably well.
