Description

I stopped the session after the first image because of the reflection in the image.
First I tought it should be something on the sensor.
I slewed to other targets but there was nothing to seen. After a while I slewed back to the Pacman nebula but the reflection was still to seen. A day later I tried again but with same result. So I decided to give up imaging the Pacman nebula.
This is my shortest DSO image I published :-)
