About this image

Imaged between 03:20 and 03:30 UT this makes an interesting comparison with David Strange's image.  I've also used 120 second subs but only 14 in this image with my 14inch to David's 30 with his scope.  We both used a ZWO camera, in my case the ASI071 and Dvid the ASI533.  I would have taken more but in my case I'd started late after a long night and by 04:00 UT I had had enough!
