Certainly one of my favourite targets, this is the first time I have visited it unbinned with the Artemis. Friends were visiting this evening, so I just left the scope to get on with it for several hours.

I do have some colour frames of this, but the quality is so poor I could not flatten them enough to make a colour image.

Previous attempts:

No doubt I will visit this fun part of the sky again one day!
