About this image

Single  frame  as Deep Sky Stacker and Computer  seem to have  parted ways today,

 After  several evenings  being thwarted by  poor  sky conditions  and unable to ID the Star field 10 th was clear enough  to get a fix on Beta Cassiopeia and  using  the setting  circles on the Polaris mount  finally find the  Nova.  Image is a crop  of the  centre of the frame.
