Can someone identify this please...


Recommended Posts

I know the main target tonight was IC443. I only got 3x 300s subs due to cloud but decided to process them anyway. But there's what almost (to me) looks like a trailed comet to the left of IC443. I've looked at different sky charts physical and on-line but nothing is shown in that area? The bright star (lower right) is Propus.

Is it perhaps some internal reflection caused by moonlight?

I agree. I actually seen identical reflections in my EP last night while viewing the Moon. So it doesn't surprise me that when imaging, this fella has got very similar reflections/artefacts in his image.
