The sky at the Sept 2011 Kelling astro camp seemed to be constantly hazy. I decided I would attempt an image of Barnard 150 despite the poor conditions. The colour data for this image was taken in very foggy conditions when really I should have given up and been in bed. However my persistence paid off with the image being quite presentable, albeit the stars are a bit “blobby” caused by the sky haze.
