About this image

Following the discussion on magnitude estimates for the Nova and its rapid change,  I recorded this with two images taken 3 days apart at about the same time (2318 ut) on June 12 and June 15. The later observation is fainter, and is more red. (Ha).
The area of sky shown is ca  0.5 x 0.5 deg, and is a crop of the original DSLR image.
