The dark LDN 1235 nebula and it's two bright reflection companions vdB 149 and vdB 150 are a part of a bigger structure dubbed the Shark nebula. I've also seen it called the howling wolf, but I honestly think I is the spitting image om Homer Simpson's dog called Santa's little helper. Anyway, it was photographed from the woods in Ytre Enebakk outside Oslo, Norway in March and April this year, I was unsure if I would be able to dig the faint dusty dog out of the sky glow from the city. This is a total LRGB integration time of 26,3hrs, imaging train is a Takahashi Epsilon 180ed, a QSI 583wsg and a Lodestar guide camera all mounted on a Em200 Temma IIm in a permanent private observatory.
