This has been somewhat of a nemesis of mine lately. After finding the C33 the other night I was inspired to give this another go armed with a little bit more patience. Thanks to wind and conditions we finally had a one hour window with no smoke above.
NGC 281 The Pac-Man Nebula
Invisible without filter. Barely directly visible with Ultrablock filter on. With averted vision I was able to sketch more of the details and see some of the divisions and edges. The lower "jaw" was easier to see, and seeing the edges of the upper portion of the "pac-man" shape was harder to pin down. Worked on adjusting pressure with the stump to create that "fade" into the background.
