This is a bit of a cheat really, as I didn't take this image.  I've been helping test the Open University COAST telescope ( for some time now (replacing the Bradford Robotic Telescope), and as all of my targets are Variable Star related, I thought I'd share this with the BAA as it contains a nice fuzzy blob to make you deep sky observers happy!.  I don't spend any time processing these images, so this is pretty much how I downloaded it - without the Supernova ID markers of course.  The photometry revealed magnitude 13.156CV.
