About this image

Taken though thick fog last night. I was so busy doing a TPoint calibration I had not noticed visibility dropping to 200m so I just grabbed what I could before the corrector plate finally dewed up.

Pixel scale is 3.05 arc secs a pixel, so the thing is pretty big now, but still very bright.

Glad to finally catch this with a decent scope.
