LBN 438 from London

Another one taken in September either side of the full Moon with Voyager in command.

Pretty tough object from London. Beautiful area in Lacerta. The background is pretty red but this is natural as the nebula gets its illumination from interstellar radiation known as Extended Red Emission (ERE).

For a proper shot of this area see Bart Delsaert’s version:

Or Jim Thommes’:

See the annotated version in Astrobin for the many background galaxies towards the north of the frame.

Very nice Roberto. This is a very difficult object to image.


Indeed. Thank you Peter. Having no reliability issues with Voyager makes it a tad easier!

Thanks you so much … great result as always !!
I’ve tried without success this object.

All the best
