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.
