A bright surprise

With the surprise result on The Bubble Nebula I am inspired to investigate more of the NGC objects with a bit more optimism. Although last night was a bit murky for any serious attempts at anything I pointed the scope at NGC 7662 (The Blue Snowball Nebula) and was amazed when a single 60 second exposure revealed it easily. This looks bright enough to try using some more magnification so next time I'll see if I can use a Barlow on it. Details: 10" f4.3 Newtonian prime focus 1x 60 seconds @ iso 400 (detailed view in CS2)
