Comments ...SH2-240, aka Simeis 147, LBN 822, GN, and Shajn 147.
...The Reflection nebula at lower left is GN05.36.5.0, a Brightness Scale of 1-6 = 6.
...2nd First Light project; new AP1200, new SV80/9D Guide Scope, new FLI PDF focuser, shortened and rebuilt pier.
...The use of a Red filter on the STL-Remote Guider appears to be working well.
