captured NGC 1501 (Halifax)

The BGO robot imaged NGC 1501 for me. A neat planetary nebula in Camelopardalis. One of the RASC Finest NGCs. The slight registration problem is affecting the central star.

Luminance only, 60 seconds subexposures, 10 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, Paint.NET. North is up; left is east.


Tried to reshoot on 4 Sep. Got good data on 12 Sep.
