Comment : Now when at the dark place at Ingarö I must try to catch some nebulas. This is the Heart Nebula. It's not easy to recognize it in the strong full Moon light. I give it a new try later when not full Moon and give it much longer exposure. I had to throw away half of the photos because of clouds coming into the field.

The flat calibration master is far from perfect, as a result the center got a dark spot which shouldn't be there. It's very difficult to take high quality flat frames, this is done against the evening sky before the stars appear.
