Another Cepheus Sharpless.

Despite the additional light pollution I made an attempt at another of the Cepheus nebulae. ID of this one is Sharpless2-140. Considering the small number and washed out looking subs I was a bit surprised to extricate the amount of nebulosity that eventually revealed itself. This was a result of pushing the processing hard and trying some fresh ideas to minimise the star bloating and noise that occurs when stretching the contrast a large amount. Details: 10" f4.3 Newt. 8x 10 minute exposures @ iso1600 with CLS in DSS, CS2 & XAT.
