Last week I set in the imaging plan to get some Ha & Oiii on NGC3242 "Ghost of Jupiter" with the tiny TMB LOMO 80 at F/4.8. The idea was to try and catch the faint nebula nearby. Way too faint but I tried a 4x drizzle on the 1.67 arc-sec/pixel image to see if NGC3242 might show something. It's only 25 arc-sec wide I think. The TMB 80 is pretty crisp.
