Seeing conditions

Forums Deep Sky Variable nebula update Seeing conditions

This is why Owen and I always maintain that reliable observations of VN have to be  the domain of imaging and not visual. Visual observations are far more affected by seeing conditions than the camera and the above example shows how much a camera can be affected. I have observed Mr G visually a couple of times in the 24″ (not for some time now) but the view is always too tenuous to note any detail/change. As a visual dinosaur I have to concede the camera wins in this field 🙂
