A planetary, a galaxy and distant clusters

This image is a little off the beaten track. It is off NGC246 and NGC255. 246 is a planetary nebula commonly known as the skull nebula. On it's own it is a little dull but when you include in the field NGC255 which is a face on galaxy, it all looks a bit more interesting. Then there are the myriad of galaxies in the back ground. I particularly like the lenticular galaxy at the left bottom of the field.

The image contains 39.5 hours of integration. Taken with the RC12 and STXL.Ha 540 minutes:OIII 570 minutes:Luminance 705 minutes:red 205 minutes:green 155 minutes:blue 200 minutes.
