Observing location
Canon 60Da
CLS-CCD filter
Sigma 105mm F2.8 @ F3.5
Vixen Polarie
30s subs, stack of 8

Prepared to image this following the TA alert and BAA forum. Next night was clear. Couldnt use the main scope (trees) so set up the Polarie tracker. Very strong red colouration in the image. The Da is red sensitive and the CLS filter removes yellow, so only a guess as to magnitude which looked like 8 compared to nearby stars. The last time i saw anything like this was Nova V1500 Cygni in 1975.
