Gyulbudaghian's Nebula in a 114mm

About this image

An image of Gyulbudaghian's variable nebula using the 114mm guidescope. Proving that nearly anyone can observe variable nebula. 

This is the guidescope with a focuser where the guide camera being used for imaging is a very poor fit. It wobbles about a lot causing coma.

Note: image resampled to 200%

The main mirror took 5months to be realuminised. Normal service may resume in a month or two.
