A reasonably deep image of the area around PV Cep (LM around 21) shows that the nebula continues to fade (see Mike Harlow's description here). I get PV Cep at 18.6 now (Gaia DR2 G, unfiltered KAF-6303 CCD). How much fainter can it get?

Hi Nick,

Thanks again for quantifying "very faint" ! From my image it 'looked' even fainter than your previous measurement of 18.0.  I'll keep imaging as often as I can to see what happens next...

Mike.
