Another Sharpless

The extended clear evening gave me the chance to try for Sharpless2-132 which is a largish nebula in Cepheus. It was about 2.00am when I finished taking the subs and transparency had improved to the point that I was rewarded with a surprisingly obvious Milky Way to look at as I closed up the observatory.... a seemingly rare event these days. I'm sure I could have gone deeper under the conditions. This is a full field image from my Newtonian. Details: 10" f4.3 Newt. 20x 5 minute exposures @ iso1600 with CLS in DSS, CS2 & XAT.
