Another quick look at Gyulbudaghian's nebula between patches of cloud and rain(!).  Very subtle changes since my two most recent images on 6th November and 12th November

Running the three images as an animation gives the impression of a wave of illumination spreading away from PV Cephei. 

This object would be well worth imaging at larger image scale every clear night to characterise future rapid changes.

Location of nebula, RA 20h 46m Dec +67 58, field of view in image is 15 x 15 arc minutes with north up. Reproduced at 150% of original size.
