Image taken with ProStar 5X barlow and Imaging Source DBK21 colour CCD video camera fitted to Vixen R130Sf Newtonian telescope. Due to heavy cloud and sprinkling rain, this image was obtained within a very brief crack in the clouds for about 30 seconds or so. The sky quickly returned to rubbish but something was better than nothing.
