Cool pic, Ray!

I'm not too familiar with this DSO?  What constellation is it in?

Very nice pic Ray!  I have observed this visually and was able to detect faint nebulosity in the ep on nights of good seeing in the Z12.

This object is in Auriga Poppa Chris.

Clear skies all!

Got a fantastic start Ray,

Definitely a BIG target, might make a great mosaic target. This one's on my to-do list, but it's beginning to become that time of year for me to be clouded out most of the time.

Keep'em comin, Tim.
