Moon blazing away overhead last night, but it was nice and clear up to around 11:00 p.m. So what to image? How about a nice Carbon star? This little beauty is UU Aurigae in the constellation Auriga (SAO 59280) and makes a fine centrepiece to this image. There are a couple of faint fuzzies to be found in the background as well, an unexpected bonus. 34 subs at 3-minutes per sub, dithered, taken using the Hyperstar III on the Celestron Nexstar GPS C11 with the M25C one-shot colour CCD.
