Nice image. That looks like part of it is currently very bright.

Looked at the trend a couple of days ago. T Tauri is fading slowly so, in time, we will be able to more easily spot the nebulosity close in to the star as well. 

EDIT: Just started imaging it and yes, this brightening is dramatic. Obvious in a single 20s frame.

Hi Richard,

That's impressive...a clear change in just a week!
