Sharpless 2-126

This is an area of wispy nebulosity in the constellation of Lacerta. Like many of the objects in the Sharpless Catalog, it is faint and takes quite a bit of exposure to render. This image consists of about 9 hours of exposure through RGB filters and a Hydrogen-Alpha filter. The images were taken on October 21-28, 2008. Equipment used was a Takahashi FSQ-106 refractor and a SBIG STL11000m CCD camera.
