Equipment Details:

Vixen VSD astrograph and a Nikon Z6 modified for h-alpha

Post-processing Details:

This is a stack of 10 sec subs, brief because of bright Moonlight comprising a total of 12 min of exposure. Images stacked with Deep Sky Stacker and processed with Photoshop

Image Details:

The Nova V1405 is low in the sky requiring quick work as the light fades to night. Bright Moonlight still detracts tonight but it will be better in two days with dark sky, weather permitting. The Nova is reported as slightly faded although not obvious this night. The bluish sky is my perception of the bright Moonlit sky and this photo adjusted to my sky color view.
