NGC6992 - the Face and Pickering's Triangle

Taken on 27.5.12 from Austerfield, with the M25C in the WO98, under a cloudless though hazy sky.  The guiding was difficult to set up till I remembered I'd been photographing the Moon earlier and had set the mount speed to Lunar and not re-set it to Sidereal.
It was acquired and pre-processed in Astroart and finalised in Photoshop without sharpening. The exposure was 13x600sec, but as always more time would have been better.
