Been aware of this faint Mira in M27 a long time - here a 30s field shot from last night for identification

Nytecam, do you know the designation of this Mira?

No Rich - did look via Google search at discoverer's website which states period and mag variation but no further. It's probably ~mag 15 at best and thus too faint for visual? Such finds near bright Messiers can't be uncommon due to their intense imaging scrutiny - this one discovered via covers of Astronomy mag!
