Image Details:

Tough observation here, as it moves behind my house quickly in fading light. This photo is 1 min of only 5 sec sub images at 1600 iso with a H-alpha mod Nikon Z6 and a Vixen 380 mm FL VSD F3.8 telescope. Just had minutes to capture photos before the line of sight was blocked, The sky is too bright with Moon and fading light. Converted to BW to increase contrast.
