Fancied imaging a more obscure object that I haven’t tried before.

Plently of good cold clear nights at the moment with excellent visibilty.

Captured more detail than expected given my light polluted back garden.

More housing estates being built in swindon so light pollution getting worse.

Data collected on three nights. 4th & 5th & 7th November.
