Scott, feel free to use my image if that works for you. You should be able to download the full resolution image from Astrobin - first click on the image, then click on the Full Resolution button at upper left.
Just make sure it is 3012x2286 after you download it. If it isn't, just let me know and I will be happy to send it to you.
P.S. The object transits now 2 hours before nautical sunset so it will be hard to get a new decent image of it until later this year.
Hey, thank you, Gary. I have to say that I've bumped into a lot of your images while searching for ones concerning my article! The reason I didn't run across your image of BV 5-2 in Astrobin is because I didn't hit upon the right keywords since it goes by many designations (B-V 5-2, BV 5-2, B-V 2, ect.).
Interesting that even though it is circumpolar, it would be hard to shoot because it has already transited the meridian after sunset. I figured that wouldn't be a big deal since you guys shoot while the Moon is in the sky and under brighter skies than my own!! I guess it is mostly because you would normally take a lot of long exposures and you are worried that each one would be progressively worse over the course of an hour (as it dropped slowly lower)?
Scott, one more thing - in addition to Böhm-Vitense 5-2, I have also posted images of the other 2 Böhm-Vitense objects (5-1 and 5-3) on Astrobin as well, in case that is of interest to you.
Thank you. I have seen all three in my 10-inch and found that BV 5-3 is the brightest followed by BV 5-1 and then BV 5-2. And I have saved a link and downloaded a copy to your image of BV 5-1!
