Hey, I have no problem with "scoper". I probably won't use it myself, but I'm fine with it.

Fuzzy now has two meanings for me. The first being the fuzzy you see when you just don't have enough oomph with aperture and the objects are not fully resolved. The second fuzzy being the detail is so great the tendrils of matter popping up all over the nebula make it look fuzzy where it previously looked smooth from lack of resolution.

 

when you can see all those little details but you have to look carefully for them to see all, then it is a faint fuzzy, but in a good way.

The weather must be very cloudy for everyone to be spending this much time and energy discussing two words. :lol: LOL

The list of DSOs that are presentable to the uninitiated is VERY short and they aren't that faint.

 

Break out the awesome sauce!

It is actually clear here today and I am heading out to image some "Incredibly Dim Nebulous Apparitions" (IDNAs) this weekend BUT it will be HOT with highs around 100°F and lows around 72°F! 

Thanks heavens my Casita camper aka Moonlight Manor has air conditioning. :cool:

Or even better..."Incredibly Low Luminosity Nebulous Apparitions" or "ILLNAs".  I know...another acronym.    :smirk:
