We have photographed the LDN 1400 object that hides the SNR G150.3+4.5, aka "Thor's Lightning." A collaboration on data acquisition allowed us to highlight the SNR signal but also to unveil an OIII shell around the star "CI Camelopardalis". The StDr team, which supported us on this project, analyzed our data and helped us to register this discovery, allowing us to open the Martino-Sainty Object (MarSai O) catalog MarSai O 1 was named the "Angelo's Nebula", in homage to my father. - My material and exifs : RGB exifs: 269x300s Alpha exifs : 83x600s Takahashi FSQ85-EDX scope and ZWO ASI2400MC camera and Optolong L-Ultimate filter for the Hydrogen Alpha signal.
