About this image

It was a clear night so I thought I'd try to find V1405 in Cassiopeia.  This was shot fortuitously through a gap in my neighbours cherry tree.  Not having done anything thing like this before I thought I'd provide an estimate of the magnitude and guesstimating from the magnitudes of the two bright stars one to the lower left of the nova (mag 6.6) and the other to the upper right (mag 7.8 both from Stellarium) I'd say about mag 7.  There will of course be those of you who do this regularly and so if you want to give me any feedback on that estimate please do.

Hi Andrew,

That's a really lovely image of the nova and its neighbours!
