About this image

Quick look at Gyulbudaghian's nebula before the Moon came up.  Little change since my last images from home on 28th October and remotely on 31st October. But there is some indication that the nebula is now more detached from PV Cep. More images planned over the coming New Moon window to confirm this.

Updated 27th November:  After another imaging session last night more images stacked to give 152 x 30 seconds in total.

Field is ~ 15 x 15 arc minutes with north up and shown at 150% original size. 

Location of nebula:  RA 20:45:56, Dec. +67:57:44.
