more Fireworks (Halifax)

It's been weeks since I photographed the Fireworks galaxy aka NGC 6946 which was the site of the SN 2017 eaw supernova. Last image is from 1 Apr. Asked BGO to have another look...

Firework spiral galaxy sans supernova

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

There's a dim point there burning around magnitude 19.
