SH2-180 (Sharpless 180 )

This is a dim but interesting Sharpless object that can offer some nice detail with a large telescope. However, this object is rather dim so a long exposure is needed. The nebula does fair on the hydrogen-alpha filter. The RGB data is quite dim so blending the H-Alpha channel will help colorize this faint nebula.
