Dark Nebula – Barnard 142 and 143

In my previous post I captured a hint dark nebula Barnard 142 and 143.  But as the lens drifted out of focus, I could only use a few frames (14 out of 60).  At the next clear sky I aimed Altair in the constellation Aquila with the goal to capture a good 60 frames in-focus to once again capture Barnard 142 and 143.
