Description

This is IC417. Not a target on my list but I came across it while testing out my new scope, an AT12RCT on a G11 mount. I do love this telescope, but I'm struggling with the dew after the upgrade. 1 night of safe imaging in the last 3 months, but it looks like it will be worth the extra patience.
