Sh2-199 by floodlight

Continuing with the apo I made an attempt at Sharpless 2-199 (The Soul Nebula) which is adjacent to The Heart Nebula in Cassiopeia. Although I have now lost the Christmas lights the floodlight on the church tower continues to wash across the sky at higher elevations so there seems no benefit going for my usual 10 minute subs on targets in that part of the sky. I did half the subs @ 7 minutes and then increased to 8 as the subject moved away from the worst affected area. Details: Megrez 88 apo. 8 x 7 + 8 x 8 minute exposures @ iso1600 with CLS in DSS, FIV, CS2 & XAT.
