About this image

Having spent 3 hours waiting for NLC's and imaging the Crescent Moon, Venus and Mars, I arrived home and saw the BAA Nova alert on Facebook. I decided to have a go at capturing the Nova and despite a slightly foggy lens think I managed it. Not the best image but I'm no expert at Nova imaging, at least I had go.
