About this image

I was pleased to get any sight of this supernova remnant. The extent to which a longer exposure will yield greater detail is an experiment for a future observing session.

The Unistellar, after five observing sessions, has certainly increased my interest in and enjoyment of observing DSOs very considerably.

Bortle 7/8, no Moon, cloud free.
