JENS ZIPPEL, BRE­MEN, GERMANY, 20 FE­BRU­ARY 2018 Jens says: “This project was de­vel­oped in co­op­er­a­tion with Mar­cel Drech­sler, who pro­vided ad­di­tional data from his ob­ser­va­tory at Bären­stein. We de­cided to cap­ture this ob­ject be­cause it was a real chal­lenge. There are only a few im­ages of it taken by am­a­teurs, be­cause it is so faint.”
