This is IC59 and IC63 nebulosity around the star Gamma Cassiopeia (the one in the middle of the W).

Thanks Gordon :D

Looking at my log it says 58 subs at 90-seconds per sub. This is on an 11" reflector working at f#2 using an SXVF-M25C one-shot colour CCD.

Fantastic. This is why I like astronomy and astrophotography. This might be a dumb question but can you make out the nebula with the naked eye through the telescope or does it come out when stacking multiple images?

That particular nebula would be difficult to see naked eye through a small scope. You can see it in a single sub-exposure on the monitor though.

It's really quite amazing how many stars are out there. There's so many it could almost be confused for ISO noise!

Many people just don't seem to realize just how many stars are out there (most not visible to the naked eye). Is there really any doubt that somewhere out there there's life?
