Hello all. Here is my latest effort... imaged from Nocturne Observatory on the night of 9/6-9/7 of 2010. This is Van den Bergh 158, a dusty region with a reflection nebula near the brighter stars. This is a very dim object and the data were stretched hard to bring out the faint dust. The planetary nebula PK 110-12 1 appears as a small blue ball near the bottom-center of the image.
