About this image

A quick and dirty Hind's Variable nebula.

We had passing cloud through and eventually rain. So I stopped.

The collimation needs work but, even so, its clear the nebula is still bright.

Well done. Several times I got the telescope in operation only to be clouded out and rained on within minutes!
