Mirach's Ghost (but not Donatiello I)

Recommended Posts

A long time ago I took a 4min Watec integration of "Mirach's Ghost" NGC404...
(Steve O'Meara's "Hidden Treasure #4". It's FUN 'cos it's near a bright star! 🥳

Randomly I received a link re.: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donatiello_IW
Waaaaaay beyond my "seeing" OR setup!?! (Surface Brightness  +27 ?!?)
But it's a Great Story re. Amateur Astronomy! A Fun thing to try maybe? 😎

Very interesting link that, Chris. I was thinking of having a go until I spotted the surface brightness ... It shows there is still much to be discovered by amateurs.
