Jacoby 1
Observing location
Fregenal de la Sierra, Spain
APM TMB LZOS 152 Refractor
10Micron GM2000 mount
QSI6120wsg8 camera
OIII 85x1800s bin 3x3, Luminance 16x300s bin 1x1, RGB each 10x300s bin 1x1

Allegedly one of the faintest planetary nebulae, this really was a challenge but eventually I managed to drag out of it some structural detail. But then I did have to capture over 42 hours of OIII at bin 3x3! Not for the faint hearted!
