Description

I photographed this back in April as Auriga was just passing too far to the west to really get quality time on it. I was only able to get 47 minutes of good data, but after becoming more versed in PI, I have revisited the data. It's pretty weak to start with, but I look forward to this winter when I can spend some more time on this part of the sky!
