I don't post here often but use the site to find examples of imaging that I feel

I might be able to tackle. Thank you all for posting your images. Auriga was

quite low early on the evening of November 16 and I had seen some very cool

images posted here, mostly done with mono cameras, of IC410. It is often

overlooked due to its proximity to the Flaming Star nebula right next door. 

The weather liars said that it would be clear all night long so I figured I'd attempt

some imaging. I started my imaging run and hit the sheets until about 2 AM. 

I came out to check on the meridian flip and oh boy, the clouds had rolled in.

Luckily I had attached the dew straps, the scope was covered in dew but

optics were dry as a bone.I was able to get only 44 four minute light frames.

I wasn't going to take any flats figuring I'd have to ditch the image anyway.

The only reason I'm posting this image is to give others an idea of what can

be done with a one shot color with just under three hours of integrated exposure

time.

never give up!
