Description

IC 417 is a beaytiful Bright Nebula in Auriga. 10,000 light years away.

This is a first light image using my ZWO 071 MCPro.

I think I'm going to like this new CMOS camera! It produces nice clean images.

This was captured using the Orion Sky Glow filter. With a 60% moon lying 50 degrees away.

Seeing 6/10
