About this image

I lost 56GB of data accidentally a couple of days ago so the date and exposure length of this picture are entirely guesswork. Sorry!

A lovely image Grant. The VN next to HBC340 & HBC341 is well shown in the upper left quadrant of the image.

Richard: is that the downward facing fan-shaped patch? I was struck by the nebula at 2 o'clock from the star being slightly brighter than neighbouring bits of nebula. The other lobe of a polar flow?

Nick: Have found the final FITS file - on a memory stick that proved to small for everything I wanted to transfer. Is that what you wanted? Happy to put file on OneDrive or similar if its any use to you.
